Former Chelsea and Barcelona star, Deco does not think the result of the UCL tie will decide Conte’s future.
Chelsea have failed to defend their title, sitting in fourth and 19 points behind Manchester City.
And Chelsea have a tough encounter in the UCL last-16 against Barcelona.
And Deco does not think Abrahimovic will sack Conte if Chelsea fails to qualify.
“I’m not in the daily routine of Chelsea, Chelsea nowadays is a big club and all big clubs have the pressure of [needing] victories, even being in England, where managers tend to stay longer,” he told Omnisport .
“But Chelsea’s history is not the same of other English teams, of course this will be a challenge. To be defeated by Barcelona won’t be a disaster. Of course, Chelsea wants to get through, but I don’t think their manager’s work will be evaluated by this. That’s a problem [for] them and they know what to do.”
