Conte Set To Bid Chelsea Farewell After Two Years

1530861710_8c11b

Antonio Conte has finally been let go by Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri waiting in the wings as the next Blues boss.

Conte looked certain to leave this summer and his exit has been confirmed, despite the Blues' 1-0 win over Manchester United at Wembley in the FA Cup final in his last game in charge.

Widespread reports on Thursday claimed Conte has been sacked, and the club released a statement announcing the 48-year-old had been axed the following day.

But Chelsea player Cesc Fabregas has thanked Conte on social media and wished him "luck for the future".

However, while present players may have had issues with Conte, former Chelsea legend John Terry, who left after the league title-winning campaign had nothing but praise for him.

The former Empoli manager was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.

Antoine Griezmann has been directly involved in 20 goals in his last 20 competitive games for France (12 goals, eight assists). Belgium's haul of 14 goals is the most at this stage of a World Cup since 2002, when eventual winners Brazil had 15.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles. Farther out in the tropics Beryl continues to gradually weaken with winds now down to 50 miles per hour with gusts up to 60mph.

Napoli refused to end Sarri's contract despite hiring Carlo Ancelotti as manager.

Conte departs a year before his contract was due to expire and will now be in line for £9million in compensation.

It is reported that Chelsea owner Roman Abrahimovic has agreed to pay the £9 million compensation fee to Conte.

In any event, the working relationship between Conte and Chelsea is over - as soon as that is made public by the club, the appointment of Sarri, with Blues legend Gianfranco Zola as part of the backroom team, will nearly certainly follow shortly after.

The appointment of Sarri could help Chelsea land Napoli's Jorginho.
