My Chelsea future is in the club's hands, says Antonio Conte

Conte will have no shortage of options when he does leave Chelsea, with Paris Saint-Germain understood to be keen to bring him in.

Reigning champions Chelsea now sit third in the Premier League, one point behind second-place Manchester United, but both have more or less conceded the title to league-leaders Manchester City, who are clear by 15 points.

"I was asked about my passion and you know I was speaking about myself and then the question to the Chelsea manager was that I said he behaved like a clown", said Mourinho, when asked about Conte's "demenza senile" comments.

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has been named Premier League manager for December 2017.

"At the general level what I can say is myself and the Manchester United board, the owners, we don't believe a lot in the January market". (But) there is something unusual if, after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach. "If there is a possibility to find a good solution to improve the squad I think the club knows very well my opinion". "In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away".

However, Conte opted to bring the Belgian off in the 84th minute of the game, despite Chelsea still searching for a victor in front of their home fans.

"He's a great player and knows very well that in my first season at Juventus we tried to buy him from Udinese, but then he chose to go to Barcelona", he said. "What I was trying to say is that I behave bad a few times and this moment I control myself better".

"Against Stoke, we scored five goals but against other teams, we have maybe missed too many chances, '"Courtois told". For sure I have great admiration for great players.

"He has the flawless platform to make a judgement given the fact that Conte won the title with the same players Mourinho accused of betraying him before he was sacked by Chelsea".
