The questionable consistency of Mourinho’s tactical poor display has not only thrown his future into uncertainty but has gotten Chelsea linked to probable replacement in the mould of former Juventus and Italy manager Antonio Conte for the under-fire ‘Special One’, reports Gazzetta World.
Mourinho and Chelsea have endured an unprecedented worst start spanning the last 37 years in the Premier League. But despite the shambolic start for Mourinho and his men, the board has opening endorsed and backed Mourinho to continue leading the reigning EPL Champions.
According to the report, the Azzurri’s coach has thrown the Italian FA into the dark as he has refused to put pen to paper. And there are suggested that his agent is in contact with some top European clubs, with Chelsea and PSG heavily tipped.
However, the report further states that Conte is more likely to favour a move to the Premier League as he is keen on the thrills and atmosphere of the toughest League League. Conte won the Seria A three times consecutively for Juventus among other trophies.
Meanwhile, during his playing career, Conte was vastly experienced and ended for Juventus as one of the most decorated player in their history. As a player, he won the Scudetto five times and was also privileged to win the Champions League once.
