Antonio Conte: Chelsea sack Italian after two years in charge

13 July 2018

Conte won the Premier League in his first season and the FA Cup in May, but the team finished fifth in the league last season, missing out on Champions League qualification.

Incredibly the club have released a statement thanking Conte for his services to the club, but the message only consisted of 52 words.

Conte regularly questioned the club's ambition and dealings in the transfer window and departs after failing to guide the Blues into next season's Champions League.

Conte - who had a year to run on his contract - is seen to have contributed to his own demise by falling out both with the players and the board as the sheen of the title victory quickly disappeared. "Great man, Great manager. I wish you every success in the future".

The exuberant, passionate and, at times, bonkers Italian was popular among many Chelsea fans and there was lots of support for him after his tenure finally came to an end.

Napoli midfielder Jorginho has reportedly arrived in London to undergo his medical with Chelsea ahead of joining the club.

Former Spain manager Julen Lopetegui was appointed instead.

The study was led by Al Ross, who wrote a grant funding the creation of a Morse code communicator for disabled children. The project was developed in collaboration with Tania Finlayson, an assistive tech developer with cerebral palsy.

The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.

Conte has been sacked after two years at Chelsea.

Sarri's future has been up in the air since Napoli hired Carlo Ancelotti as its new coach in May.

Maurizio Sarri will not be taking his old backroom staff from Napoli to Chelsea and is only bringing in Gianfranco Zola as his number two.

Sarri has also presented a list of players he would like to sign.

Russia World Cup star Aleksandr Golovin is another close to arriving from CSKA Moscow, along with Juventus defender Daniele Rugani.
