Chelsea sack manager Antonio Conte

  • 1 Hour Ago Shock as Chelsea sack Conte

The BBC said the 48-year-old Italian's two year reign - which brought league success in 2017 and the FA Cup last season - was ending although they added Chelsea would not comment.

Conte took training when some of the Chelsea squad returned for pre-season this week but has always been expected to be replaced this summer.

He won the FA Cup last season and leaves with the best Premier League record a 65.1% win-rate of any manager in charge at Stamford Bridge for more than 100 games.

His exit could mean that Chelsea's transfer window finally grinds into gear, with Sarri understood to have already instructed the Blues board to chase a number of players, including Jorginho, who is expected to follow him from Napoli for €58 million. That speculation only intensified when Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas and former Chelsea captain John Terry paid tribute to Conte on social media.

"Thank you boss. Great man, great manager".

His future has looked uncertain with Chelsea failing to qualify for the coming season's Champions League after finishing fifth.

Trump has quipped about the USA going it alone before, only to have the administration walk back his comments. Still, Trump has been more conciliatory behind the scenes, including at a leaders' dinner Wednesday.

The club's 64-word announcement was eventually made on Friday, ending with: "We wish Antonio every success in his future career".

Chelsea take on Huddersfield Town in their opening fixture of the new Premier league campaign on August 11.

Two trophies in two seasons but the writing was on the wall.

The Blues added the FA Cup to their trophy haul under Conte back in May following Chelsea FC's 1-0 win against Manchester United at Wembley courtesy of Eden Hazard's victor from the penalty spot.

However, it's been over a month since Ancelotti's confirmation and still there is no official line from Chelsea even though the club have started their pre-season preparations.

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