Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has openly admitted that he is a “disaster’ when it comes to convincing the Chelsea board to sign players he wants at club.
During the January winter transfer window, the Premier League Champions added to the team, three more players to the seven they added in the Summer, they seem to not be pleasing with the Manager.
With the newly signed players struggling to adapt to life at Premier League, Alvaro Morata struggling in the frontline and failing to lead the team numerous times, Antonio Rudiger not being sure where the Central defense is, and Tiemoue Bakayoko, whose last best performance was his first start against Tottenham Hotspurs in the Premier League and since then has failed to replicate the same performances in his matches.
Meanwhile, blues boss, Conte has stand firm on the Chelsea board making the transfer, with his recommendations and wants for a transfer of a player is always being ignored.
Speaking to the Press via Football365, Conte said, when asked if current team could very much improved: “I don’t know, Usually in my experience, I reached the best results possible with the players I have to work with.
“I think that I’m the type of coach who if I have a player who is 6/10, I bring him to an 8/10. If I have a player who is 8/10, I take him to 10/10. I’m this type of coach.
“My task is this and, for this, I’m very good. But I think I’m a bit of a disaster to convince the club to buy players. I think in this aspect I can improve a lot.
“I have to learn a lot from the other coaches, the other managers, in that aspect. I have to speak more with the managers who are very, very good at persuading their clubs to spend money to buy top players.”
The English club have been defeated twice in a row in two Premier League match, with a shocking 0-3 home defeat to Bournemouth, and another 4-1 to Watford.
Conte’s future has been in doubts after those defeats and the ones before that, meanwhile you can bet on Chelsea’s next match at the Premier League.
However, Blues Legend, Gianfranco Zola believes the Italian manager can make a comeback for the team and is not worried about facing sack.
He told Standard Sport: “People who ask if he is affected by all of this, they don’t know Antonio very well.
“I have known Antonio for years and in his career he has had tough moments, injuries, breakdowns and he has always came back fighting. Antonio doesn’t worry me.
“It is difficult for every manager, we live for results. When things don’t go well we suffer. But Antonio is a manager who has been through periods like this and come out of it very well. I’m sure he can cope.
“Antonio has shown during his spell in England that he deserves people to be patient with him. He deserves it for what he has done for this team.”
Conte will be willing to do anything to redirect the team from destruction as they will be facing Barcelona next week in the Champions League.
