“I’m doing a great job” – Chelsea boss Antonio Conte feeling “relaxed” despite Blues suffering shock 3-0 loss to Bournemouth

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has had his say following his side’s embarrassing 3-0 loss at home to Bournemouth this evening in the Premier League.

This is according to Chelsea’s official website, who state that the former Juventus boss spoke about the external pressure he’s facing at the moment.

Speaking after his side’s shock loss to the Cherries, Conte said “About the pressure, it’s normal for a coach and manager. It’s normal if you are Chelsea’s coach. We are giving everything, 120 per cent and I think I’m exploiting this squad at the maximum level.”

Conte also then went on to add “But if someone doesn’t agree I’m here and I have to accept every situation. I’m very relaxed about this because I’m doing a great job, me and the staff with the players.”

Since joining the Blues in the summer of 2016, Conte has certainly made his mark in the Premier League so far.

Last season, he managed win the league title in his first season, as his Chelsea side romped to a total of 93 points, recording a record 30 wins along the way.

However so far this season, things are looking a bit different for the former Juventus coach, as his side currently sit fourth in the Premier League, 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

The west London side also failed to finish top of their Champions League group, and were knocked out of the League Cup in the semi-finals by rivals Arsenal, so it’s understandable to see why some may say Conte is under pressure at Stamford Bridge.
