With speculation increasing over his job status, the Italian’s run at Stamford Bridge could be set to end after just two seasons
Former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli believes that current Blues boss Antonio Conte can’t wait to leave the club.
Conte won the Premier League last season in his first year at the helm, but his second season at the club has been far more challenging.
Following a 3-1 loss to fourth-place Tottenham on Sunday, Chelsea find themselves eight points off the pace in the race for the final Champions League spot with just seven games left.
And Conte has clashed with Chelsea management over personnel decisions, with the Italian unhappy with a perceived lack of support in the transfer market.
Vialli, who played with Conte at Juventus and is now a television pundit, believes that the 48-year-old is just waiting for his time at the club to end.
“Conte can’t wait to leave Chelsea,” Vialli told Sky Sport Italia.
“He can’t stand that they sell or buy players without consulting him. The truth is, Chelsea would like a manager who is more of a club man.”
Though Conte could be set to depart Stamford Bridge he may not be out of a job for long according to his former team-mate, with PSG and a return to the Italy national team mooted as potential destinations.
“Whether it’s the [Italy] national team or Paris Saint-Germain, he’ll find a place where he can start winning something important again,” Vialli said.
“There will be a queue of contracts for him to sign.”
