Antonio Conte isn’t fazed a bit by the rumours he will be next to get a lucrative P45 from Chelsea.

Even though bookies suspended betting on him being asked to check the flights home, the gaffer says the Premier League is pussycat territory when it comes to being shown the door.

One Italian has already bitten the bullet with Swansea’s Francesco Guidolin asked to make way for American Bob Bradley.

But that’s mild compared to the manager merry-go-round in Serie A.

“In Italy it's worse,” Conte said.

“In Italy it started Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, pushing the manager.

"I think in England it's better, it's better, on this side. In every country, though, it can happen.

"This situation, with the betting; this is very strange because they stopped the bets. I'm trying, I'm trying to find who put this money on,” he said tongue in cheek.

Back in the day when Claudio Ranieri was the man in the Chelsea dugout rather than Saturday's visitor, he said Italian bosses are like Mary Poppins - only without the gentle fall to earth enabled by the famous film and book character’s iconic umbrella.
