Observer on Saturday - - Sport -

- An­to­nio Conte said yes­ter­day he was un­able to give any guar­an­tees over his fu­ture at Chelsea, adding that "ev­ery­thing is pos­si­ble" as spec­u­la­tion over his po­si­tion at the club per­sists. The Ital­ian won the Premier League last sea­son in his first year as head coach at the Blues, who play


for­mer ti­tle win­ners Le­ices­ter to­day. Conte signed an im­proved con­tract last sum­mer but it was not an ex­ten­sion to his deal, which still ex­pires in June 2019 and there has been con­tin­ued spec­u­la­tion over his po­si­tion at Stam­ford Bridge.

The for­mer Ju­ven­tus and Italy boss, whose side are third in the ta­ble, said that goes with the ter­ri­tory of work­ing at Chelsea and does not hap­pen at other clubs. "I have another year of my con­tract with this club," he said. "But as you know very well ev­ery­thing is pos­si­ble. In one mo­ment you stay here, in another mo­ment another per­son re­places you in your job."
