Chelsea have terminated the contract of their manager Antonio Conte.
Conte vacated his position after two years in charge of the London club. The manager failed to lead the side into the Champions League last season finishing in fifth place.
The manager exits the Blues having won the Premier League title in his first season at the club. He also won the FA Cup in his final match in charge of the London club.
Conte returned to the Cobham last Saturday to commence Chelsea’s pre-season training, however the Italian will not continue with the team as the club inches closer to signing Maurizio Sarri as manager.
