The 47-year-old manager said Chelsea were “conditioned to win” and that Emma Hayes’ departure at the end of the Women’s Super League season would have little impact on the season.
Hayes is set to leave Chelsea for the United States women’s national football team after winning 13 major trophies in 11 seasons in West London.
“It was probably the only job that could take me away from Chelsea,” Hayes told reporters ahead of Chelsea’s home WSL match against Liverpool on Saturday.
“I’m still in danger of being fired. This is the truth. I manage Chelsea, I need to manage the team to win. “I’ve always told you this, I work every day like it’s my last, so I don’t think going through this season will make me or the players feel any different because we’re conditioned to win here and that’s our focus.”

Liverpool is in fifth place with 11 points.
