It's always been known that Conte would be dismissed with Sarri the favoured replacement, yet it was somehow allowed to get to the stage where the former Italy coach took the first three days of pre-season training before being dismissed.

The statement read, "Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company".

Former Chelsea club captain John Terry has paid a fitting tribute to Antonio Conte, who was sacked as manager of the club on Thursday in a decision that was highly expected from ardent fans of the club.

Conte equalled the Premier League record for for consecutive wins (13), and the record number of wins in a season (30) when leading Chelsea to the title in 2016/17 season.

"I wish you every success in the future".

Conte has been on the verge of an exit since the closing stages of the 2017-18 season, but due to a multitude of reasons, the club have dallied in making it official.

The former Italy coach took preseason training this week with the players not featuring at the World Cup.

The Italian had already publicly criticised the club's transfer policy and warned, from as far back as August past year, that his squad was not strong enough.

Chelsea have finally announced that Antonio Conte has left the club after months of speculation surrounding his future.

But it will be another fresh start for Chelsea with Sarri becoming the club's seventh permanent manager since 2011.

The Italian had two contrasting campaigns at the helm as he over a team that finished 10th in the Premier League as defending champions and turned them around immediately to reclaim the title in 2016/17.

Sarri's arrival could also pave the way for Jorginho to complete his move to Chelsea soon.

Conte has looked to be on borrowed time at Chelsea since last summer but history suggests his departure will hardly shake Stamford Bridge to its foundations.
