Chelsea’s new manager pictured at Stamford Bridge

55 days ago Conte celebrates Chelsea’s FA Cup win after beating Manchester United 1-0

The 46-year-old managed Empoli in the 2016/17 season but could not do enough to prevent the Italian minnows from succumbing to relegation from Serie A.

Conte joined the Roman Abramovich-owned club in 2016 and led them to the league title in his debut season along with an FA Cup triumph last campaign.

Friday's Chelsea statement announcing that they had "parted company" with Conte was brief, and without a thank you, but it did highlight what the club had achieved before relations soured.

'During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup.

In Terry's final season at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea sailed to the 2016/17 Premier League title in a convincing fashion in what was a fitting end to the defender's time with his boyhood club.

The club have handled Conte's departure terribly over the last few months.

The former Italy national coach returned to take training this week but the writing was on the wall and the drawn out process was reportedly due to how much compensation the club should pay Napoli for his likely successor Maurizio Sarri. The team will now play in the Europa League.

Will Chelsea secure a return to Champions League football this season?

Conte delivered trophies in his two years at Chelsea but also brought controversy. If Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink's second spells are included, it is the 14th managerial change in only 15 years for Chelsea under the Russian oligarch.

Sky Sports report that the Italy worldwide arrived in London on Friday ahead of a much-anticipated move to Stamford Bridge, the Blues snatching him from the clutches of Manchester City in the last couple of weeks.
