Antonio Conte said he would need to resolve his differences with the board of Chelsea in order to see out the rest of his contract.
Conte expects to have other options available to him if he leaves Chelsea.
“In 14 years, Chelsea have changed coach 10 times, so they do have a tendency to chop and change here,” he told Mediaset Premium. “The media plays on this when the results are negative, and they were already talking about me getting sacked after we lost the first game of the season to Burnley.
“But it’s no problem for me. In fact, I really like pressure. I just hope it doesn’t affect the players. In our line of work, we always have a bag packed. My intention is to remain here, but if something were to change, there would be several different scenarios opening up.
“It’s no problem for me. But I have said very clearly that I have a contract to 2019 and I intend to respect it, but anything can happen in football. I’m happy here but, to move forward with the marriage, everyone needs to be in agreement. All parties must be happy.”
