Best tweets: 'Savage, classless Chelsea didn't even thank Antonio Conte'

Antonio Conte

Sarri would be the 12th managerial appointment by Chelsea, permanent or otherwise, since Abramovich acquired the club in 2003 and they have not come or gone cheaply.

Ex-Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to succeed his compatriot at Stamford Bridge.

Conte's relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy had soured in the final year at the helm of the club regarding transfers.

A statement reads: "Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company".

Chelsea have sacked manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge. "In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game season".

Conte leaves with the best win percentage 65.1 per cent of any of Chelsea's managers in the Premier League era.

Many will argue the move is a harsh one, as Conte was decent throughout his reign and he can leave with his head held high as the Blues did not have a trophy-less season during the two terms under his tutelage.

The off-field controversies bled onto the pitch and the west Londoners flattered to deceive.

Conte took preseason training this week at Chelsea's practice base in Cobham with players who hadn't featured at the Fifa World Cup, but reports emerged in the Italian media on Thursday (Friday NZT) saying Conte had been fired. "I wish you every success in the future".

The 59-year-old helped establish Napoli as a major threat in European competitions with the club finishing just four points behind Juventus last season.

The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.

At times during the Sarri reign, Napoli played an nearly mesmeric style of football which was just about the most attractive in Europe.
