Where it went wrong for Conte at Chelsea

first_imgHere we look at three reasons the Italian only lasted two seasons with the Blues:Costa meltdownThe champagne corks had barely finished popping at the end of Chelsea’s title celebrations in May before Conte bizarrely lost his cool with Costa.Misjudging his power base, Conte felt winning the league should allow him much more say in who came and went from his squad — and first in his sights was notorious malcontent Diego Costa.Infuriated by Costa’s mood swings and an attempt to engineer a move, Conte decided to sell the Spain striker even though his goals had been instrumental in the title success.But he hadn’t reckoned on Costa going public with a text message from Conte telling him he was no longer in his plans, a move that prompted the Chelsea boss to exile his forward from the squad.The situation quickly disintegrated as Costa refused to train with the reserves, leaving Chelsea struggling to find a buyer.Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was said to be furious and, although Costa eventually got his wish to join Atletico Madrid, the Italian was on a collision course with the club’s hierarchy.The breakdown in relations manifested itself in Conte dragging out negotiations over a new contract and when he eventually signed the improved terms, tellingly it didn’t include an extension.Transfer warsChelsea’s Russian owner Roman Abramovich seen here celebrating Chelsea’s title win in May 2017 has in a year decided to part company with manager Antonio Conte © AFP / Ben STANSALLAlready grumbling about his lack of influence over transfers and complaining that Chelsea weren’t spending as much as their rivals, Conte was livid when Abramovich sanctioned Nemanja Matic’s switch to Manchester United before the start of the season.It didn’t help that technical director Michael Emenalo left the club, leaving Marina Granovskaia, a close Abramovich aide, in charge of transfer deals, much to Conte’s chagrin.Conte’s main complaint was Chelsea had failed to land his top targets, with Romelu Lukaku moving to United instead, and Juventus defender Alex Sandro also proving untouchable.Conte went public with his frustration, muttering darkly during pre-season about the problems lying in wait for Chelsea if they didn’t strengthen the squad to cope with the demands of returning to the Champions League after a season’s absence.For all Conte’s complaints, Chelsea still spent over £120 million on Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger, Davide Zappacosta and Danny Drinkwater.It didn’t help Conte’s mood that the players he was given largely under-performed, with Rudiger the lone useful recruit.Morata’s failure to adequately replace the more physical Costa as the fulcrum of Chelsea’s attack was a huge blow that left them fatally lacking a cutting edge.Unaccustomed to being questioned so openly, Abramovich is believed to have been vexed by Conte’s belligerent attitude — putting the pair at loggerheads as Chelsea’s problems mounted.Personality clashesEngaging in a petty feud with United manager Jose Mourinho only added to the perception that Conte was unravelling as Chelsea failed to keep pace with City in the title race.Angered by some typically acerbic jibes from Mourinho, Conte gave a stinging response, branding his rival a “little man” and questioning whether he was suffering from senile dementia.But the 48-year-old’s hardline stance wasn’t limited to mischievous opponents.The season was only a few weeks old when Conte’s players were reported to be chafing at his demanding training sessions and intense personality.Numerous hamstring injuries suffered by Chelsea’s stars led some to question whether Conte’s training methods were culpable.Conte was said to have reacted to the growing angst around him by retreating to his inner sanctum, speaking only to his most trusted assistants and becoming distant from his players.Well aware that he was unlikely to return, Conte went out with a bang after the Cup final, taking the chance to remind Abramovich what he would be missing when the axe fell.“After two years, the club knows me very well. I can’t change,” he said.“I think in a difficult season like this, I showed I’m a serial winner.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Guiding Chelsea to last season’s FA Cup was not enough to prevent the club ending Antonio Conte’s contract prematurely with one year to run © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 13 – Despite winning the FA Cup final against Manchester United in his last match in charge of Chelsea, Antonio Conte’s sacking on Friday was the inevitable result of a stormy season at Stamford Bridge.Chelsea finished fifth in the league — 30 points behind champions Manchester City — just 12 months after winning the title and their failure to qualify for the Champions League sealed Conte’s fate.last_img read more

Pochettino pledges to stay with Spurs

first_imgDefeats against Chelsea in the League Cup semi-finals and Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round have left Tottenham boss Pochettino in danger of going another season without a trophy.Despite failing to win a single major prize in his managerial career, Pochettino says he regards finishing in the Premier League’s top four as a greater achievement.The Argentine, linked with a move to Manchester United at the end of the season, responded to the doubters by claiming he has over-achieved on the club’s brief to take them in the Champions League by the time they built their new stadium.“I love my job, I love my job. And of course I love a big challenge,” Pochettino said on Tuesday.“I am a very positive person and I am going to try and deliver in my job. I am going to going to stick with the club until the end to help the club achieve all they want.“When I arrived at Tottenham I knew very well the challenge will be tough and what happen now will happen now.“We are victims of our own success, the club was in a different level. No one believed in us, no one believed the way we operated from beginning will bring success to club.“Of course club played once in 22 years in the Champions League and now after four years we played three times in row – that was the dream of our fans, our staff and players to play in Champions League.“The principal thing that we need to clarify, our fans need to know, when you ask me if I agree to win a domestic cup will help us to achieve the last level, I cannot agree.”– Something missing –Tottenham haven’t won silverware since 2008,“In the last four or five years we played in four semi-finals, one final, I think we try, we were there, we were close,” Pochettino said.The former Southampton manager admitted his team still aren’t the finished article after over four years in charge.“Right now we are focused on trying to win every game in every competition, but for different reasons we are still missing something that means we cannot deliver.”Pochettino does deserve credit for making Tottenham a consistent presence in the top four despite spending far less than their Premier League rivals.They could go through two successive transfer windows without signing anyone if Pochettino doesn’t bring in a new recruit by Thursday’s deadline.Pochettino said last week that the club were working on some options to bolster their squad before the January window shuts, but he is now not expecting any incomings.“You know how we work,” Pochettino said. “In the last minute everything can happen. Of course different players maybe will have the opportunity to leave the club.“We’re going to see. Of course there’s not too much time.“A few days ago I was very optimistic about some options to sign – realistic options to sign – but today no, I’m not optimistic.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pochettino has been criticised after Tottenham crashed out of two cup competitions in the space of four days last week.LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 29 – Mauricio Pochettino claims he won’t walk out on Tottenham despite being a “victim” of his own success.Pochettino has been criticised after Tottenham crashed out of two cup competitions in the space of four days last week.last_img read more

‘There is a revolution going on at Rangers under Steven Gerrard’

first_imgSteven Gerrard is sparking a Rangers revolution, according to new signing Connor Goldson.The arrival of former Liverpool captain Gerrard has rejuvenated the Ibrox support after going through three managers during two seasons of third-placed finishes in the Ladbrokes Premiership. 2 Connor Goldson in action for former club Brighton Goldson is among five new players to have joined Rangers already this summer along with his former Brighton team-mate Jamie Murphy, who made a loan stay permanent.And he believes a sea change is occurring at the club as they desperately try to end Celtic’s long reign as champions.He told RangersTV: “I feel like there is a little bit of a revolution going on. The new manager has obviously made the fans happy and made them excited again.“I know it has been a tough few years, but I feel like there is a lot of optimism around the club and I feel this is the perfect time for me to be joining. 2 New Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has big plans “I feel like the whole Scottish League is getting more excitement around it. I feel there have been a few big attractions in the last few years who have come to Scottish football, and I think that has just raised the level of awareness around it.“The league is obviously getting better and better, and that is another reason why I decided to join. I don’t think it is a step-back any more coming to Scotland, especially Rangers.“It is a great step to take and I am happy to have taken it.”Goldson is with his new team-mates in Spain as Gerrard tries to imprint his standards on the squad during their pre-season training camp.“He wants to bring a winning mentality to the football club, and I am all for that,” Goldson said.“I have been lucky to have been in winning teams, being promoted a couple of times, and that is what I want to do here.”last_img read more

first_imgTHIS is Donegal supermodel Faye Dinsmore – sporting a very new haircut.Perhaps she’s celebrating after her ‘friends’ on her Facebook Page passed the 250,000 mark this week!Or maybe she’s just celebrating being on the front cover of the Sunday Times style magazine. On her friends online, she insists: “It just went viral. It’s weird, but I guess people love seeing what models get up to behind the scenes.”And the 23-year-old insists she stays close to her Donegal roots…to keep her feet on the ground.“My parents are proud. It’s funny — imagine this 80-year-old farmer dad reading fashion magazines. But I love that I grew up in the country, knowing nothing about this world. Like, at Christmas, I went to a fancy party in London, and the next day I was home in wellies on the farm.”And she stays close to home.

GOVERNMENT SHOULD REPLACE HOME TAX WITH WEALTH TAX, SAYS DOHERTY

first_imgResponding to the government’s proposed value based property tax Sinn Féin Finance Spokesperson and TD for Donegal South West Pearse Doherty today said the best and most fair way forward is to introduce a wealth tax as it takes account of ability to pay.Speaking today Deputy Doherty said: “The value based property tax, as proposed by the government, does not take account of personal circumstances such as ability to pay or variations in value based on location.“The Government has not mentioned any linking of their proposed tax with ability to pay; the taxes already paid on the property; or even with the value of the property. They appear to be leaning towards square footage value. “Sinn Féin’s wealth tax is a more equitable proposal which links ability to pay with a percentage tax on all property, physical, material and financial, over €1 million. Our wealth tax allows 20% write-off of the value of the principal residence. It is estimated to bring in €800 million in a full year.“I am calling on the government to abandon its plans for a property tax and seek negotiation with the Troika on the issue in the Memorandum of Understanding.“In addition to this the Government must reverse the household charge, which is a flat tax that is being levied at households in anticipation of the introduction of a property tax and water charges.” GOVERNMENT SHOULD REPLACE HOME TAX WITH WEALTH TAX, SAYS DOHERTY was last modified: August 28th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
