NEW CHELSEA manager Antonio Conte is more likely to face the sack before the end of the season than win the league in 2016/17 according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies make Chelsea 9/2 third favourites for the title but it's shorter at 4/1 he gets the boot before the end of next term, even though he's just 7/4 to get his hands on some major silverware at the first attempt.
The Italian manager entered the permanent Chelsea boss betting at 20/1 following Jose Mourinho's departure, foiling gambles on Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone and Brendan Rodgers.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "The scale of the challenge Conte faces is clear as the odds suggest it's more likely he moves on before the end of the season than wins the title at the first attempt."
