Chelsea football club has sacked the manager, Antonio Conte. Sky Sports reports that the Italian gaffer is no longer the head coach of the West London club.
The reports claimed that Conte is set to bag £9million in compensation. It also claimed that Conte’s exit will now pave way for manager, Maurizio Sarri who is now expected to replace his fellow countryman at Stamford Bridge, providing that the Blues and Napoli work out a fee to release him from his contract.
Speaking after the FA Cup final win, Conte had told reporters that he will “respect” his contract but warned that he would not change his approach.
“After two years, the club knows me very well, and if they want to continue with me they know me, I can’t change,” Conte said.
“My way is always the same, hard work and to build a strong mentality with my players. I can’t change. Conte spent two years at Chelsea. He became the 10th permanent manager to work under Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich.”
The former Juventus and Italy manager went on to lead the Blues to Premier League glory in his first season in charge, recording a then-record 30 wins along the way.
