Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich given Antonio Conte advice by former Blues boss

Posted February 08, 2018

Check out this list below to see all the different managers who've been at the helm of Stamford Bridge since they first won the Premier League title in 2005.

Pressure is mounting on current Antonio Conte, and he is odds-on to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job. There is precedent for Chelsea managers losing their jobs after facing the Baggies, with Andre Villas-Boas sacked in March 2012 after a 1-0 defeat at the Hawthorns and his successor, Roberto Di Matteo, leading Chelsea to a 2-1 loss to West Brom in the last league fixture before his dismissal.

The Daily Telegraph say Abramovich will not allow player power at Chelsea to decide whether or not Conte stays.

According to the report, "a core of individuals" feel that Conte's tough approach hasn't helped them this season, and they aren't pleased with the treatment of popular figures in the squad.

Since leaving Liverpool to join Barcelona, Suarez has scored 140 goals in 178 appearances for the Spanish giants. Camp Nou legend Xavi had to intermediate a problem between the manager and some players in the 2014-15 campaign, although it did end with the club claiming a treble. But, again, things may change if the next few results don't go well. The former Barcelona coach is said to be open to the prospect of replacing Conte.

The Blues host Barcelona in the first-leg of the Champions League last 16 on 20 February and, if the report from Sport comes to fruition, one of Luis Enrique's first games at Chelsea could be against his former side.

But reports believe that Conte may have a chance at keeping his job after Abramovich knows that his "trusted players" are not at the club anymore.

Conte's pay-off, however, is reported to be in the region of € 30 million and the contract of the Italian tactician expires at the end of the season.
