5 top football managers who are without jobs at the moment
#2 Antonio Conte
Conte has been without a club since he was sacked by Chelsea this summer.
Antonio Conte spent two seasons in the Premier League with Chelsea, becoming just the fourth manager in the league's history to lift the trophy in his first season in charge, joining Mourinho and Ancelotti as the other Chelsea managers to have achieved this feat.
The relationship between the Italian and the Chelsea hierarchy soured over the two years, with disagreements over transfer policy being the reason behind the annulment of his contract.
Conte claimed the Premier League title and an FA Cup in his two seasons at the club, while also bringing key players like Alonso, Morata, Kante, and Rudiger to Stamford Bridge.
At the moment, he has been constantly linked with some of the biggest clubs, but it seems he has chosen to take a sabbatical from competitive football, with him expecting a payment of £9.5 million in dues from Chelsea, Standard reported.
Standard quoted him saying this about his future plans:
“I don’t feel the need to coach now.”
“My plan is to wait until June. The problem now is that for a coach who is of my level it’s better to wait rather than to jump on a train already in motion. Serie A is a great league and being in Italy is always attractive. I would like to come home, but I won’t rule out a job abroad.”
