In response to the comments made by Costacurta, Conte's former teammate at global level, he reaffirmed his commitment to the west London club.
Former Milan defender Costacurta, who, together with legal expert Angelo Clarizia, is now one of Fabbricini's two vice-commissioners, confirmed that "the names are those currently circulating: Mancini, to name one, with whom I also played".
Conte said last week that he meant to see out his contract at Chelsea, which runs until the summer of 2019.
Italy, the four-time world champions, failed to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation after losing to Sweden in the play-offs in November. "Don't forget, this summer, we brought in eight players and spent a lot less than other teams who bought only two or three". "My intention, my will, my desire is to respect this contract". According to some reports, Luis Enrique is in a very enviable position to replace Conte, especially if the Blues need a replacement for Conte before the end of the season. I think I'll have to move quickly.
"I will go to London to speak to Conte and in the same city, there is Ancelotti too".
"We have to make the best decision to bring these two players in the best physical condition and then to work with them". Sometimes, when I have had the possibility, I have tried to do a little window of work for the players I had chose to rest [after a game]. However, things haven't been as easy going in his sophomore year at the Stamford Bridge. The Italian boss took the national side to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 before exiting after a 6-5 penalty shoot-out loss to Germany. It is also reported that Conte has fallen out with club's management, and is also rumored to be tempted to leave and become Italy's next coach.
