Chelsea confirm Antonio Conte has been sacked with 52-word statement

Moses Misses Blues' First Training Session - Latest football news in Nigeria

Chelsea have terminated the contract of their manager Antonio Conte.

Conte has managed Chelsea for the last two seasons, winning a Premier League title and an FA Cup in his time there.

Ex-Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to succeed his compatriot at Stamford Bridge.

Cesc Fabregas and John Terry sent messages of support to Conte before the club's official announcement, thanking the coach for creating special memories at the club.

It was clear that the Italian manager would not continue in his role after he fell out with a number of players and openly criticised the club's spending.

The latter report also suggests that Conte is prepared to take legal against Chelsea if they renege on any part of the compensation agreement, which would probably mean going before Federation Internationale de Football Association to plead his case.

Time for a new era, says Ronaldo - Portuguese star explains Juventus move
But he still has it in him to take another league by storm, and that is why Juventus have made such a bold move by signing him. Cristiano Ronaldo's decision to end a nine-year Real Madrid stay to sign for Juventus is the right move, according to Pele.

The former Juventus boss led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season in charge of the London club.

While Chelsea's pursuit of Sarri has been rocky since the end of the season, the club is already working on several transfers requested by the Italian, including a group of targets from Serie A.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career".

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

Should Sarri be appointed, he would be Chelsea's ninth full-time manager since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.
