Chelsea set to announce Maurizio Sarri with contract signed at Stamford Bridge

Cesc Fabregas pays tribute to Antonio Conte BEFORE Chelsea confirm sacking

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.

It has been widely expected that Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri would be Conte's replacement, although Chelsea have struggled to come to an agreement with the Serie A club over his release.

Chelsea confirmed Antonio Conte's departure earlier today in a telling 61-word statement, ending his two-year stay in west London.

Conte's been absent from all social media posts by the club, which has only fuelled rumours that he won't be in charge by the time the Premier League season starts in August.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career".

A Federer-Nadal 2018 Wimbledon final? Novak Djokovic hasn’t seen the script
The reprieve was only momentary for Hsieh, as Cibulkova regained her composure to break and take the first set, 6-4. It is the first time in Wimbledon history not one of the top 10 women's seeds have reached the quarterfinals.

Maurizio Sarri has reportedly agreed a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea and will be joined at Stamford Bridge by Gianfranco Zola. All managers at Chelsea know that trophies but sometimes even that isn't enough as some have found out to their cost but ine thing we do know is that Sarri will do it his way, or the highway.

Sources told ESPN FC on Thursday that Conte, who had refused to walk away from Chelsea unless the final year of his contract was paid in full, had been sacked.

After Christmas they suffered back-to-back league defeats twice - first by Bournemouth and Watford, and then against Manchester City and Manchester United - and a run of four-straight wins late in the campaign could not secure a top-four finish. Jorginho and Sarri together again?

El Shaarawy has reached double figures in terms of scoring in just two seasons since making his competitive debut almost a decade ago but during this period, he has produced many match-defining performances.

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