I'm 'a serial winner': Conte awaits Chelsea decision

Share

Saturday's FA Cup final triumph over Manchester United was the best moment in a frustrating season as Chelsea failed to build on last season's league triumph, with a tepid title defence underpinned by background tension that leaves many speculating that Conte will soon leave.

Whether Hazard remains a Chelsea player next season could depend on whether "good players" are signed in the offseason, based on the winger's pre-match comments.

After the match Hazard warned that Chelsea will have to be more ambitious in their approach if they want to win trophies in the future, but Conte insisted that his game plan was necessitated by the players now at his disposal.

"We'll see after the World Cup whether I am a Chelsea player for next year", said 26-year-old Belgium global Courtois, who is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer.

The nerves of the occasion are clear for all to see as the players ready themselves for one of the biggest games of the season. Messi said, "It is obvious that I like him, he is one of the best players right now".

"We'll see what is going to happen after the World Cup".

Conte himself is unsure of a future at Chelsea, despite winning a trophy in each of his two seasons with the London-based club.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who managed Chelsea on two separate occasions, is extremely fond of Willian and attempted to bring him on previous year. "But I also think in a hard season like this, I showed I'm a serial victor. Also if my future must be in a different way".

The Blues missed out on a Champions League qualification spot after Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the table.

"Whatever he or the club decides, they will know what they do", the goalkeeper said.

"But after two years, the club knows me very well". What I can say, it has been a great finish.

"If he doesn't, he's gone away with a Premier League and FA Cup".

"And we must be honest to say this with the players, but at the same time you have to know the real situation".

"When you play against a team so predictable it's quite easy to adapt to it".

"I am the first to accept every decision for the future". I'm very happy for the players and for our fans and at the same time I'm happy for the club.
