After two years in charge at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have sacked Antonio Conte from his position as head coach. The Italian who guided the Blues to a memorable Premier League title win in his first season, and a FA cup victory was told he was axed at a meeting today, sky sports reports.

Chelsea’s dismal performance during the 2017/2018 campaign which did not only see them finish 5th on the premier league table but also made them finish a 30 points behind Manchester City, is not unlikely to be responsible for this development.

Antonio Conte has the best win % (65.1%) of any manager in Chelsea’s history to take charge of 100+ games. He is the first manager to win 30 Premier League games in a single season.

They look to appoint Maurizio Sarri as his successor .
