Chelsea part ways with manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea sack Conte after months of uncertainty

It wasn't easy for me to convince you in the beginning but in the end I hope I did you proud! "Best of luck, Maurizio!"

Playmaker Fabregas "liked" a message welcoming Conte's departure on Twitter, later apologising and suggesting he had pressed the button in error.

Italy midfielder Jorginho has followed Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea from Napoli.

Conte had been heavily linked with a summer exit from Stamford Bridge after publicly criticising the club's transfer policy, with an FA Cup victory not enough to keep him in the job.

Sarri has replaced Conte as boss before, with a short-lived spell at Arezzo in 2006-07 before Conte was reappointed.

The west London side did manage to end Conte's final campaign on a positive note, however, by beating Manchester United to win the FA Cup in the final back in May.

His future has looked uncertain with Chelsea failing to qualify for the coming season's Champions League after finishing fifth.

However with Sarri still under contract with Napoli, and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich reluctant to spend in light of his visa issues, all parties had been left in limbo until Conte was finally relieved of his duties on Friday.

There is a strong argument that this is the most turbulent time of Abramovich's ownership.

Chelsea have also indefinitely postponed plans to rebuild Stamford Bridge in a scheme which would cost more than £1billion.

Sarri's first game at the helm is scheduled to be the July 23 friendly against Perth Glory in Western Australia.

The appointment of the former Napoli boss had been expected since May, however the Blues had long stalled over a pay-off to his former club.

Antonio Conte has been sacked by Chelsea after months of speculation over his future and despite the Italian overseeing pre-season training earlier this week.

And Italy midfielder Jorginho could also move to London from the Naples club.

His playing style contrasts Conte's and it's likely that his arrival will see the re-introduction of the 4-3-3 to the squad, who have been playing in a three-defender system for the past two seasons. I loved working and learning from him.

He then wrote on Twitter: "Thank you Mister for another Premier League title and FA Cup".
