Willian's Instagram activity suggests he really doesn't like Antonio Conte

Chelsea may be the 2017/18 FA Cup winners but all is not well at Stamford Bridge, it seems.

Antonio Conte refused to comment on his future, while the players certainly didn’t appear to back their manager when asked at full-time.

Eden Hazard’s first-half penalty against Manchester United was the difference between the two sides, leaving United trophyless this season.

And it’s looking increasingly likely that it will be the last thing Conte does at Chelsea.

If the Italian manager is to leave the west London club in the coming weeks, one Chelsea player might be pretty happy.

Willian was introduced into the final in the 91st-minute, replacing match-winner Hazard. And it probably isn’t too surprising the Brazilian didn’t start the game given the interview he gave earlier this week.

When asked about his relationship with Conte, Willian said: “Oh boy! Do you really want me to tell you?” he said before adding: “Let’s save it for one next interview.”


What a bizarre answer.

And what Willian has done on social media following Chelsea’s cup success sums up what he thinks of Conte.

In a picture of the entire Chelsea squad and staff on the Wembley pitch celebrating their win, Willian has placed trophy emojis so that they completely cover Conte.

There’s no way that is a coincidence.

Chelsea fans certainly don’t think it was, and thought it was Willian showing everyone what he really thinks of his manager.

And after seeing what Willian had done, Evening Standard reporter Simon Johnson revealed that Willian “walked out of Wembley a long time before his #cfc team-mates yesterday.”

Willian will be keeping a close eye on what Conte does this summer and the victorious manager explained his situation.

"I am the first to accept every decision for the future. Because after these two seasons I will always love this colour, these fans, this club. And also if my future must be in a different way," Conte told reporters.

"I think that after two years, the club knows me very well. If they want to continue to work with me, they know me. I cant change.

"To miss the Champions League, for sure is not good for a club like Chelsea. But at the same time, I think you have to know the situation at this moment to understand this group of players did their best in this season."

"When you have this type of season, there are moments when you have a lot of questions for yourself. But also in a difficult season like this, I showed that I am a serial winner.”
