Conte insists his position is different to past managers, hinting he has received assurances from the higher ups.
“I am not like the previous managers. I am different,” he said. “It is important to understand this. The club has to judge the work and honestly, I don’t have this type of worry, about if I lose the game, if the club decides to sack me.
“Why am I different? Only because in the past, the club decided after two losses or three bad games to sack a manager. I don’t think it is the same for every manager.
“You change the person, change the work. I repeat. If you ask if I feel this type of pressure about the club, it is zero.
“Honestly. I am not worried. I am very honest. Anyone who knows me well knows this is the last thought in my mind. My last worry.
“I trust in my work. I give all myself with my work and with my players. I don’t feel this type of pressure. I repeat. I feel the pressure to give a certain satisfaction to my players, to give satisfaction to my fans and to give satisfaction to the club.
“This is the type of pressure. But as for the other pressure I do not feel.”
