Frank Leboeuf believes Chelsea stars and Antonio Conte have packed it in to hurry up Italian's departure: 'It is a lack of respect for the fans and the club'

For me, it was very hard when I was a player. "Gianluca is a friend but I'm not talking with him for one year, maybe".

"I thought we played against really slick Chelsea team in the first half, we gave away a poxy goal, so I was thrilled to get in at half-time only a goal down", said Hammers boss David Moyes, whose side are now six points above the relegation zone. When I was a player, after a defeat, I was very angry and the players will have the same feeling as myself. "But this is the moment we have to face with the greatest desire to change the situation".

Luis Enrique has always been linked with taking over from Antonio Conte this summer, but this week there's been claims from Spain that Chelsea have grown exhausted of the former Barcelona manager stalling them. He is trying to give his opinion and this is his opinion, it is not my opinion.

"I can be disappointed on one side, but I respect him because he is a journalist, and he is doing his job", Conte told reporters when asked about Vialli's comments. How many times have I said to you?

"In every season you have to share responsibility for the final result", he said.

Tributes have been pouring in from former teammates, current players who learned from his coaching, and colleagues in the broadcast media.

Wilkins was much loved by fans of all his former clubs; AC Milan fans prepared a banner with the words "Ciao Ray" displayed on it and hung it proudly from the stands during the Milan derby against Inter.

The Premier League giants are in danger of not qualifying for next seasons UEFA Champions League as they languish in fifth place, eight points behind Spurs - only a season after being crowned Champions of England.

With seven games to play, Conte's tenure hangs in the balance amid widespread reports owner Roman Abramovich is considering moves for ex-Barcelona coach Luis Enrique and Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri.

'The table is showing that now there's a great gap with Manchester City. It is not simple.

"I repeat, football is not easy and a lot of people think football is easy".
