Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has backed his counterpart Arsene Wenger as he labelled him as one of the best managers in the world.

The Gunners have taken a beating from German giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League Round of 16 game at Allianz Arena earlier this week as they lost by 5-1. The result meant that the club are on the verge of getting knocked out from the elite competition at the same stage for the seventh successive season.

Many fans and former players has called for the Frenchman to step down at the end of the season after yet another disappointing season with the club.

But Antonio Conte has insisted that the club should not forget what he has done for them over the past 20 years.

“I have great respect for him as a manager and man,” Conte said.

“He has done a great job for 20 years and is doing a great job in the present.

“When you are the coach in the great team you are under pressure.  He is a really good manager, one of the best in the world.

“His team is very strong.  There are times results are no good, but don’t forget the work the coach has done in the past.”

Arsene Wenger is under tremendous pressure after Arsenal’s defeat to Bayern Munich as the fans are absolutely furious with the team and the manager. However, the Frenchman has revealed that he will still be in manager position next season even if it not at Arsenal.

The Gunners have once again saw a similar collapse over the past two months as they have lost their path in the title race and are now knocked out of the Champions League. The onus will be on the team to deliver as they face immense pressure when they meet fifth tier Sutherland in FA Cup on Monday.
