Roman Abramovich

Antonio Conte’s exit from Chelsea when the season ends may not yet be absolutely confirmed, but the major reason why Blues owner Roman Abramovich has delayed sacking the former Italy boss has at least been disclosed.

The Blues have struggled to defend the English Premier League title and currently sit 5th on the Log, five points adrift 4th-placed Tottenham Hotspurs with only four games left.

Reasons revealed

However, the Daily Mirror suggests two major reasons have prevented the club firing him during the current season.

Firstly, it’s suggested Antonio Conte would be due to receive £10million in compensation should the club terminates his deal before the end of the campaign.
