Chelsea Should Be Ashamed Of Their Statement About Antonio Conte

Meanwhile, had earlier reported that Chelsea are planning to sack their manager Antonio Conte before the club starts preparations for the 2018-19 league season.

The 48-year-old Italian, who returned to pre-season training this week, had one year remaining on his contract.

Chelsea has fired manager Antonio Conte after a two-year tenure in which he won the English Premier League and FA Cup.

Maurizio Sarri has reportedly agreed a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea and will be joined at Stamford Bridge by Gianfranco Zola. It wasn't easy for me to convince you in the beginning but in the end I hope I did you proud! In a time that should have been the most hard season of my career, Antonio was honest, respectful and there for me whenever I needed him.

Whilst the club has been stuck in limbo courtesy of the situation regarding Conte's future, transfer negotiations have carried on, although sales have been complicated.

It is now official, Chelsea have chose to "part ways" with Antonio Conte, who was a highly popular figure among the Chelsea fans, but simply could not get along with members of the board.

He ran into trouble with his employers after his first season at the Stamford Bridge but managed to wrap up the 2017-18 season with silverware - beating Manchester United to win this year's FA Cup.

When Carlo Ancelotti was offloaded after two years in May 2011, despite winning the league and cup double in his maiden campaign, Chelsea recognised his "contribution and achievements" and welcomed him back to the club with open arms.

Conte's volcanic intensity also alienated some insiders, including leading players whose discontent filtered out.

Several of the first team players at Chelsea have grown frustrated with the former Juventus coach's methods, and the club have taken the decision to move in a new direction.

Then, as has happened so often at Chelsea, it turned sour quickly.

Chelsea's statement announcing Conte's departure totalled just 52 words. This is a club used to major change and has proved it has the infrastructure to cope.
