Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has insisted that he will see out his contract at Chelsea amid claims he is set to return to take the Italy manager's job.
Reports have suggested the former Juventus coach is unhappy at Stamford Bridge and could leave at the end of the season if not before.
But Conte claims not only will he be staying until the end of the current campaign but will remain in charge for the 2018-19 season.
"I still have 18 months on my contract with Chelsea. My desire is to respect this contract," he told reporters.
“I don’t see any problems with this. I don’t know why there's speculation about my future. I signed for three years and my desire is to respect the contract.
“As you know very well, I trust my work and this is the only thing that I trust, my work. This is how I became one of the best coaches or managers."
