Just when it looked like they might be starting the season with two managers, Chelsea have finally confirmed that Antonio Conte has been dismissed from his post.

Conte has now officially left his position with the Blues having spent the last couple of months negotiating the terms of his exit.

Maurizio Sarri is now waiting in the wings to take over, with a two-year contract said to already be pre-agreed.

The Blues bid farewell to Conte with a heartfelt three-sentence, 61-word statement issued via their official website:

Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company.

During Antonio’s time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup. 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.

They didn’t even say thank-you to the man who won them a league title and a cup in his two seasons at the Bridge.

For the record, with Conte’s reported £9million severance package added in, that’s now £85million paid out in compensation settlements to axed managers in Roman Abramovich’s 15 years at Chelsea.

Some going, that.

    Let’s get this straight. I have the same relationship with Chelsea as my Wife. Love / Hate. I hate they’re letting him go, though I knew it inevitable.

    Cat timp o femeie face transferuri la Chelsea va merge in clasament pentru locurile 5-8, chiar 10. Abramovici are obsesia lui cu femeile, de aceea a fost casatorit de mai multe ori, deci slabiciunea lui este punctul slab al clubului. Trebuia sa vanda clubul cand miliardarul englez a facut oferta de nerefuzat. In urmatorii 2-3 ani clubul va scadea cu 30-40% la bursa, va fi o echipa de valoarea lui Sarri fara trofee si cu femeie care face transferurile de jucatori in club. In urmatorii 2-4 ani nu va prinde UCL…
