Antonio Conte: Chelsea sack Italian after two years in charge Chelsea sack manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge

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.

Chelsea finally ended speculation over Antonio Conte's future by sacking the Italian manager on Thursday afternoon. "In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game season".

Before joining Chelsea, Conte had only coached in his native Italy, leading Juventus to three consecutive Serie A titles from 2012-14 before taking over the national team at Euro 2016.

"Thank You Boss", Terry posted on Instagram alongside a photo of the two of them holding the Premier League trophy.

Reports suggest Chelsea will draft in Maurizio Sarri to fill the managerial void.

Winning the FA Cup against former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in May was scant consolation to finishing 30 points behind champions Manchester City in the league. "I wish you every success in the future".

The 59-year-old coach was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti in Naples this summer but he wasn't released from his contract.

Chelsea seeks a 13th permanent manager under Abramovich's ownership, and at possibly the most turbulent period of the Russian billionaire's trophy-filled reign.

Sarri is a big fan of the striker, who played under him at Napoli, and Chelsea want to add more firepower to their squad.

Napoli are also expecting compensation of around £4.5million for Sarri, who is under contract even though he is no longer their coach.

However, Chelsea hijacked their proposed deal with the Evening Standard claiming a £57.4m fee has been agreed with Napoli and the midfielder is now believed to have flown-in to London to undergo his medical.

He also clashed with senior players such as Diego Costa and David Luiz while others had begun to grow tired of his methods.
