COURTOIS BACKS ANTONIO CONTE
Thibaut Courtois has backed Antonio Conte to bring Chelsea back on track. The Italian manager is under pressure at the club right now as results are not going their way.
The Blues have had a woeful start to the year and have lost to Bournemouth and Watford in the last two league games. There are speculations that Conte has lost the dressing room but the Belgian goalkeeper has rebuffed all such claims.
Speaking to the media he said, “We believe in him [Antonio Conte] and we believe in our team. We have two bad results and we just try to get back, regroup and just continue.”
“We showed that we wanted to fight even with 10 men and that shows we have character, but when you lose twice like that it is not good and there are questions raised, but we go back to training with the manager, and training well and turn this situation around.”
“Obviously we are disappointed with the two results we have had in the last week, obviously, it is not good but we have to regroup in training, have heads high and continue the hard work and just continue what we were doing.”
“We have now had two bad losses but we are a team with the manager, and everyone is positive about that, and we will try to do our best to win next week.” added the goalkeeper.
Luis Enrique is said to be the favourite to succeed Conte at Chelsea if the Italian is sacked.
