Conte insists he will not quit Chelsea – even if they fail to make more signings

Date Posted,August 27, 2017

Antonio Conte insists he won’t quit Chelsea even if they fail to make any signings before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Conte dismissed fears he could leave if he doesn’t get the players he wants this week.

The Blues boss is desperate for new faces especially with a hectic schedule when Chelsea return to action next month that would stretch his squad as it stands to the limit.

But he said: “My message for the fans is always the same: I’m totally committed to the club. Totally committed to improve my players and my team. I’m a coach, not a manager.

“The best of my work is on the pitch, to try and improve my players and my team. Then, for sure, when you want to strengthen your squad, you have to give your opinion and speak with your club, but then the club goes into the transfer market to try and sort the situation. To try and help us.

“Sometimes it is possible. Sometimes it’s not possible. But I must be focused with things on the pitch and continue to work with my players.

“Don’t forget when we start, next month, in September we have to play seven games. I need to rotate my players because it’s very difficult to play seven games in a month with some players.

“The club is working very hard to strengthen the squad. They know very well our situation. But I repeat, I’m ready in every case to continue to work with this group of players, with the players we have.”
