Chelsea officially dismiss Conte with Sarri waiting in the wings

  • COBHAM ENGLAND- JULY 11 Antonio Conte of Chelsea during a training session at Chelsea Training Ground

Antonio Conte's departure from Chelsea was confirmed on Friday, and the Stamford Bridge faithful are readying themselves for an eighth different manager in seven years.

Chelsea agreed a compensation package which could be worth up to £9million with Conte, who had one year left on his contract.

And after Napoli announced that former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti will be taking charge for the upcoming season, Sarri's arrival in West London seemed imminent.

The Italian boss joined Chelsea in 2016 and led them to the league title in his debut season along with an FA Cup triumph last campaign. "In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game season".

The timetable increasingly looks overly optimistic, and European Union frustration with British division and chaos is growing. With the threat of more to follow, it could be game over for Theresa May and Britain's entire moderate Brexit plans.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career", the statement read.

Until recently, Maurizio Sarri and Chelsea in the same sentence was not something we would have expected to see.

May's FA Cup final success means Conte - who managed Juventus from 2011 to 2014 - has won a major trophy in each of his past five seasons as a club manager.

Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that's it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

Dozens of demonstrations are planned throughout the country with the largest expected to take place in central London on Friday. At the time the Prime Minister's spokesman said: "If you watch the video, they're walking along and there is an unseen ramp".

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

Piotr Zielinski, Jorginho and Lorenzo Insigne have also flourished with Sarri at the helm. Each of these three players, among others, thrived under the tutelage of Sarri and that will be fascinating for Chelsea fans heading into the new ere.

Media reports said Conte's departure would take to 85 million pounds the amount Chelsea has spent on paying off sacked managers - nearly the record fee Manchester United paid in 2016 for France midfielder Paul Pogba.
