JUST IN: Antonio Conte Sacked as Chelsea head coach – Official Statement

Antonio Conte is no longer Chelsea head coach, according to Sky in Italy.

 

Conte, who now appears to have left Stamford Bridge after two years in charge, led Chelsea to Premier League title glory in a successful first season at the helm.

His second campaign proved far less harmonious, however, and although they lifted the FA Cup in the spring, they could only finish fifth in the Premier League.

My lawyers are in talks with his lawyers to finalise everything.”
