Chelsea sack manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge

Maurizio Sarri

Therefore, Chelsea are being forced to pay Napoli a fee to secure Sarri's services. The Italian coach regularly grumbled about his failure to exert control, particularly over transfers.

The former Italy manager had a year remaining on his current contract and had already taken charge of pre-season preparations at the club's Cobham training ground outside London.

"Thank You Boss", Terry posted on Instagram alongside a photo of the two of them holding the Premier League trophy. "Great man, Great manager".

This was finally confirmed on Friday via a statement released by the Blues, who wished Conte success in the future.

The Spanish midfielder's found playing time hard to come by under the Italian, but has admiringly fought for his place instead of pushing for a move elsewhere in the two seasons they spent together.

Chelsea take on Huddersfield Town in their opening fixture of the new Premier league campaign on August 11. Chelsea was beaten to the signing of Romelu Lukaku by Manchester United and then Fernando Llorente by Tottenham, for example.

It emerged in May that Abramovich had yet to have his British visa renewed amid a crackdown by authorities on associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sarri finished runners-up in Serie A last season with Napoli, pushing perennial Italian champions Juventus to the wire in the chase for the scudetto, but the club would ultimately fall short - during his three years at the Stadio San Paolo he failed to win any silverware.

Sarri's got a buyout clause at Napoli rumoured to be in the region of €8 million while Conte will get a hefty severance package as well so the "switch" won't come cheap for the West Londoners.
