Antonio Conte has managed to end the 2017-18 season on a high by winning the FA Cup with Chelsea as the Blues managed to trump Manchester United with a scoreline of 1-0 at Wembley on Saturday.
Despite grabbing a silverware there is serious doubt if Antonio Conte will be in charge in the dressing room come next season as multiple sources have claimed that the Stamford Bridge outfit are already in the process of selecting a new manager.
While some pundits have claimed that winning the FA Cup will make no impact on Conte’s managerial future at Chelsea other feel that ending the season on a positive note might just change Roman Abramovich’s mind prompting him to give the Italian manager one more shot at success.
Now Antonio Conte himself has spoken out on his future at the club claiming that he is a serial winner and he will not change his ways no matter what the call is from the Blues’ hierarchy.
Speaking after the FA Cup victory, Antonio Conte said: “After two years the club knows me very well,
“If they want to continue to work with me, they know me. I can’t change. My way is always the same: hard work and to build a strong mentality with my players.
“I can’t change. I’m this. I’m this and I think my past speaks very clear as a player and as a manager. You can say what you want, but I’m a serial winner.
“I showed this in England in a difficult moment for the club, after 10th place (in 2015-16). I’ve showed this also today because we found the right way to win this trophy.
“I’m very happy for the players, I’m very happy for our fans. At the same time, I’m happy for the club.
“The decision to charge me (with the job), in two seasons I brought two trophies for this club.
“I always say I’m committed to this club, to respect my contract.
“As you know very well our job is not simple. I understand that the club can make a decision, a positive decision, a negative decision. I’m the first to understand.
“I’m the coach of a great, important club, in England and the world. It’s right that the club demands of me a lot.
“There is also this possibility (that) with this group of players we did the maximum.
“I have great respect for my club. For sure we’ll make the best decision. I’m the first to accept every decision for the future.
“After these two seasons, I will always love this colour, these fans, this club. Also if my future must be in a different way.”
