Reports: Antonio Conte Has Lost Chelsea Dressing Room, Facing The Sack
Italian manager Antonio Conte has reportedly lost the support of the Chelsea dressing room, and could face the sack if FC Barcelona knock the Blues out of the UEFA Champions League.
According to ESPN Brasil, the atmosphere in the West London club's camp is now as bad as it was in Jose Mourinho's final season at the club.
Chelsea's 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge last week has put the club in a spot of bother as they were also knocked out of the Carabao Cup the previous weekend.
It has been claimed that Conte could be fired if Barca eliminate them from the Champions League's Round of 16.
It is believed that the manager's fallout with Diego Costa, a former fan favourite, did not go down too well with the rest of the squad, while David Luiz is now believed to be experiencing a similar situation with the tactician.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is also reportedly frustrated with the internal strife at his club, and is said to be lining up a replacement for the Italian.
The Blues are away at Watford in the Premier League on Monday night.
