Chelsea sack coach Antonio Conte as Maurizio Sarri appointment looms

Chelsea sack coach Antonio Conte as Maurizio Sarri appointment looms

Chelsea finally ended speculation over Antonio Conte's future by sacking the Italian manager on Thursday afternoon.

The team also missed out on Champions League qualification for next season, though salvaged something from Conte's second year in charge by winning the FA Cup.

Sarri's arrival at Chelsea is expected to be imminent. Indeed, the likes of John Terry and Cesc Fabregas have already passed on their messages of goodwill for the 2017 Premier League victor.

Conte leaves amid reports in the British and Italian media that former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri will take over at Chelsea for next season.

Antonio Conte's dismissal at Chelsea surprised nobody.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career". "Great man, Great manager".

The Spanish midfielder's found playing time hard to come by under the Italian, but has admiringly fought for his place instead of pushing for a move elsewhere in the two seasons they spent together.

He ran into trouble with his employers after his first season at the Stamford Bridge but managed to wrap up the 2017-18 season with silverware - beating Manchester United to win this year's FA Cup.

Antonio had reported for three days of pre-season training with the senior side this week, due to complications between Napoli and the West London club in reaching an agreement over compensation for Sarri.

But even so, Chelsea's announcement on Friday was quite something...

Sarri didn't win a major title at Napoli, however, and that would not be tolerated at Chelsea.
