Jamie Carragher has his say on the future of Antonio Conte.

Carragher - Chelsea "are not scared to get rid of a top manager."

Former England defender Jamie Carragher says he'll be amazed if Antonio Conte is still Chelsea boss in a year's time.

The Italian, who guided the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season at Stamford Bridge, has grown frustrated with Chelsea's transfer activities this summer.

However, Liverpool legend and Sky Sports expert Carragher reckons Conte is the kind of coach who prefers to have a say in major transfer decisions made at the club.

"I'd be very surprised if I'm sitting here in 12 months' time and he's the Chelsea manager," he told Sky Sports.

"I think he's the type of manager who won't accept the involvement from people above, especially on the back of winning the title.

"He's not going to go quietly and it's not great for the club when the manager is coming out and speaking the way he is."

He added: "What I would say is Chelsea have a business model, a very ruthless one. They're a bit like Real Madrid in that I don't think they value the manager like other clubs do.

"They're not scared to get rid of a top manager or get rid of someone after 12 months, but you can't really complain. Since Abramovich came in I think they've won more trophies than anyone.

"They have a model where they have a big say over how that club is run; the owner, Emanalo and people involved there.

"Maybe that is a frustration for Conte. He wants more players coming in."
