Five-time Premier League champions Chelsea have sacked Italian manager Antonio Conte.
The former Juventus and Italy manager leaves after two seasons in the Premier League. During his time at Stamford Bridge, Conte won the League title in his first campaign and won the FA Cup in the second year with the West London Club.
"In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories.
"We wish Antonio every success in his future career."
With the 48-year-old gone, former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis revealed on Wednesday that the deal is almost done, saying: "Sarri is close to being new Chelsea manager. My lawyers are in talks with his lawyers to finalise everything," as quoted by Sky Sports.
Conte still had one year left to his revised contract.
