Sky Sports football analyst, Jamie Carragher, said that he will be shocked if Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, is not terminated next year.
Conte is allegedly discouraged by the club’s summer trades activity and Carragher said that Conte is not happy with having crucial trade decisions taken from Conte’s authority by the club’s owners.
Carragher said, “I’d be very surprised if I’m sitting here in 12 months’ time and he’s the Chelsea manager,” he said on Monday’s first episode of The Debate on Sky Sports Premier League.”
“I think he’s the type of manager who won’t accept the involvement from people above, especially on the back of winning the title.”
“He’s not going to go quietly and it’s not great for the club when the manager is coming out and speaking the way he is.”
Carragher further added: “What I would say is Chelsea have a business model, a very ruthless one. They’re a bit like Real Madrid in that I don’t think they value the manager like other clubs do.”
“They’re not scared to get rid of a top manager or get rid of someone after 12 months, but you can’t really complain. Since Abramovich came in I think they’ve won more trophies than anyone.”
