Chelsea To Use Diego Costa Text In Case Against Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte

Chelsea have confirmed that they have sacked manager Antonio Conte, though they face the prospect of a prolonged legal battle with the former Juventus boss.

It hasn't been the most productive pre-season at Stamford Bridge with the uncertainty over the coaching position clouding much of the summer, and Antonio Conte has now officially been dismissed by Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri waits to be appointed.

That success didn't go unnoticed and unlike in England, one of the big clubs did come calling for a manager doing well at a so-called smaller club and Sarri was off to Napoli.

Conte leaves with the best win percentage 65.1 per cent of any of Chelsea's managers in the Premier League era. In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories.

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

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

After leaving Chelsea, Terry signed on to play with Aston Villa in the Championship last season.

Chelsea FC will be looking to at least break back into the top four next season after their disappointing campaign last term. Sarri spent three years at the club and led them to two runner-up finishes and a third place, playing an entertaining and high-energy brand of football like that seen at Man City under Pep Guardiola, Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino, and Liverpool under Juergen Klopp. The Serie A side, who still have Sarri under contract, have been in discussions with Chelsea to agree on a compensation fee and it is believed that everything has now been concluded.
