Chelsea manager Antonio Conte doesn’t feel the pressure of losing his job at Chelsea, and feels he is different to those who have managed at the club in previous years.
The Italian made some bold substituions in the victory against Watford, coming back from 2-1 down to win the game 4-2 in the closing minutes.
With that win, the Blues have moved up into fourth however sit nine points behind leaders Manchester City, who are yet to be defeated this season.
Despite nearly losing the game, Conte revealed in the press conference after the game he isn’t feeling any pressure of being shown the door at Stamford Bridge: “I am not like the previous managers. I am different. I am different.
“It is important to understand this. The club has to judge the work and, honestly, I don’t have this type of worry – if I lose the game, if the club decides to sack me.”
Chelsea had lost their past two league fixtures before Watford and the pressure was certainly mounting up, however Conte didn’t feel a thing: “In the past, the club decided after two losses or three bad games to sack a manager. I don’t think it is the same for every manager.
“You change the person, change the work. I repeat. If you ask if I feel this type of pressure about the club, it is zero.”
Chelsea next face Everton who have just sacked Ronald Koeman after a string of poor performances.
