Antonio Conte has been relieved of his duties at Stanford Bridge after just two years in charge of the London club. Maurizio Sarri, who was at Napoli last season, is set to be confirmed as Chelsea’s new head coach for the coming season.

Conte, who won the Premier League and the FA Cup in his two seasons at the club, had been anticipating the axe to fall all summer but with Chelsea’s negotiations over the compensation due to Napoli to secure Sarri having proved complicated, he had returned to his office at Cobham last weekend. The Italian even took training on Thursday morning before, with the players sent home for the afternoon, confirming his sacking.
