Chelsea news: Rio Ferdinand makes Antonio Conte sack prediction

ANTONIO CONTE will NOT be thinking about losing his Chelsea job, according to Rio Ferdinand.

Conte’s position at Stamford Bridge came under scrutiny earlier this month when Chelsea suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats.

But the Blues bounced back with emphatic wins over West Brom and Hull City to relieve the pressure on the Italian.

Nevertheless, it remains uncertain whether Conte will still be in charge at the start of next season.

Chelsea are entering a pivotal period of games with tonight’s clash with Barcelona in the Champions League before away matches against Manchester United and Manchester City.

“I’m sure Conte expects, if there is a defeat to be pressure mounting and I think he’s honest enough to accept that challenge.

“He’s a big manager, won the league last season.

“No one wants to be under pressure, no one wants to be criticised or put under huge scrutiny but he won’t be thinking about that.”
