Antonio Conte's agent delivers update on the manager's future

The agent of Antonio Conte has suggested that the Italian will honour the remainder of his Chelsea contract. The 48-year-old had come under pressure following back-to-back defeats for the Blues in the Premier League, but the club have since reacted with convincing victories over West Bromwich Albion and Hull City in the league and FA Cup respectively.

Speaking on Rai Sport, Federico Pastorello talked up his client's future at Stamford Bridge, and hinted that Conte would not want to leave the Blues without unfinished business, he said: "Conte has already been through that experience and prefers to work with the squad on a daily basis. I see him at Chelsea next year, as he has a contract valid for another season-and-a-half and doesn’t like to leave things unfinished."

Meanwhile, in a recent punditry, Roy Keane had underlined the 'unprofessional behaviour' of the Blues' players during the recent setback, but Conte was quick to clear any issues within the squad, he said: "No, as you know very well, in every moment I underline the commitment of the players. I think that in this year and a half we’ve had a great mentality."
Chelsea's 3-0 win over the Baggies ensured that they jumped back into fourth position in the Premier League, and this was shortly followed by a Friday night encounter versus Hull City which the Blues won by a four-goal margin to progress to the quarter-final stage of the FA Cup.
The west London side now host Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg on Tuesday night, and Conte will hope that his defence works to the best of their abilities to prevent the Catalans from gaining an away-goal advantage.
Ernesto Valverde's side have lost just a solitary game in the King's Cup this term, and the Blues face a tough test of their credentials in midweek with their defence keeping just one clean sheet against the likes of AS Roma and Atletico Madrid in the group stage.
