Chelsea officially dismiss Conte with Sarri waiting in the wings

A statement reads: "Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company".

Conte took preseason training this week at Chelsea's practice base in Cobham with players who hadn't featured at the Fifa World Cup, but reports emerged in the Italian media on Thursday (Friday NZT) saying Conte had been fired.

Antonio Conte, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during two years with Chelsea, has been sacked as the club's manager.

Maurizio Sarri reportedly agrees a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea with club legend Gianfranco Zola returning to Stamford Bridge as assistant.

Recall that Conte was sacked after spending two years at the Stamford Bridge.

Germany will make sovereign decision on military spending, Maas says
And I know that's valued very highly over here and people can disagree strongly and still go out to dinner". Partners including European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker therefore left the discussion.

Former banker Sarri, 59, will be Chelsea's eighth manager inside a decade as Russian owner Roman Abramovich has never shown a sentimental side to his nature regarding them, no matter the trophies they won the preceding season as Roberto di Matteo found just months after delivering Abramovich's holy grail the Champions League. This text will now form the basis of Chelsea's evidence against their former manager. "Good luck for the future".

The Spain international's departure appeared to have been the beginning of the end for Conte, whose relationship with the Chelsea board deteriorated throughout last term, especially after the sale of star midfielder Nemanja Matic to title rivals Manchester United, a move which Conte apparently did not sign off on.

The club also recorded the second-highest points tally in a Premier League season.

Although Chelsea strengthened with the arrival of players such as £60m striker Alvaro Morata, they missed out on other targets, including their former striker Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Old Trafford instead. And the club now has less than a month for their new manager to make an impact before their Premier League opener away at Huddersfield on 11 August.

Under Sarri's tutelage, Dries Mertens has been transformed into one of the continent's most potent attacking threats, the Belgian scoring a whopping 56 goals in the last two seasons for the free-flowing Partenopei.
