FC Chelsea: Meistertrainer Antonio Conte sucht das Glück
Das zweite Jahr ist immer das schwerste an der Stamford Bridge. Seit der russische Rohstoff-Milliardär Roman Abramowitsch den FC Chelsea im Sommer 2003 übernahm, erlebte nur ein einziger Trainer eine dritte Saison auf der Bank: José Mourinho, der die Blues von 2004 bis 2007 trainierte. Antonio Conte wird seinen Posten in Westlondon wahrscheinlich nicht mehr allzu lange bekleiden.
