Chelsea Coach Antonio Conte Set To Take Training Despite Sack Claims

Antonio Conte will take charge of his Chelsea squad for their first full day of pre-season training despite reports he could be sacked.

The Italian returned from holidays at the end of last week and was present at Chelsea's Cobham training ground on Saturday and Sunday as the players underwent fitness tests and physical check-ups.

Chelsea are still in talks with Napoli over a £4.5m deal for Antonio Conte's replacement Maurizio Sarri.

Those talks have been on for weeks now and could be concluded at anytime.

Conte is expected to be sacked as soon as the deal for Sarri is done but the Italian who won the Premier League and FA Cup in his first two seasons in charge fell out with the Chelsea board last season.

In the meantime, he is still Chelsea's manager and has to fulfill the terms in his contract, so he has prepared a pre-season programme for his players and has now returned to work.

Among the players who returned for training last week include: David Luiz, Alvaro Morata, Cesc Fabregas, Danny Drinkwater, Pedro, Ross Barkley and Marcos Alonso.
