Antonio Conte fiercely denied comments by former team-mate Gianluca Vialli that he is desperate to leave Chelsea, and that despite being sad and angry with his season he wants to remain in west London.
Vialli - who lined-up alongside Conte during their careers at Juventus - represented the Blues both as a player and manager, and revealed after Chelsea's defeat to Tottenham that his close friend was looking to leave Stamford Bridge .
Conte has repeatedly took the stance that he will see out his contract at Chelsea, which expires in 2019, and spoke of his disappointment of the latest rumours regarding his future.
"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.
"He is trying to give his opinion. This is his opinion. It is not my opinion. The people who stay very close to me they know very well my intentions – to stay, to stay here, to continue my job here. This is the truth. You will see.
"They know I am trying to put all of myself to change this situation because I have great responsibility. I feel great responsibility for my work, for my family, for everything."
