Chelsea have announced that head coach Antonio Conte has been sacked.
The Italian leaves after two seasons in charge, a spell in which he won both the Premier League and FA Cup with the West London club.
Chelsea have released the following statement:
“During Antonio’s time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup. In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories.
“We wish Antonio every success in his future career.”
Conte’s exit could mean the imminent arrival of Maurizio Sarri after Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis revealed on Wednesday the deal is almost done.
