Chelsea manager Antonio Conte hits out at suggestions that he could quit the club and return to Italy in the near future.

There have been countless reports linking Conte with a move back to Italy, despite only being a year into his successful tenure at Chelsea. He has also been linked with AC Milan.

Few weeks back, the former Juventus manager stated that he will not be staying long outside his country, adding that he will go back to Italy to manage another club side there.

Italy, under Gian Piero Ventura, failed to secure an automatic place at the 2018 World Cup and will have to navigate the play-offs, but Conte is adamant he has no immediate plans to ride to the rescue and is willing to see out his Stamford Bridge contract that runs until 2019.
