GETTYJorginho is wanted by Chelsea

Napoli star Jorginho

After his appointment in the summer of 2016, the Italian enjoyed a hugely successful first season in England, instilling belief in a damaged Chelsea side and leading them to the Premier League title.

Conte, 48, had returned to full pre-season training at the start of the week despite huge uncertainty surrounding his future at the club, but with one year left on his contract the Blues have chose to relieve the Italian tactician from his duties in west London.

With confirmation coming through on Friday morning that Antonio Conte had been relieved of his duties as head coach, leaving the way clear for former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri to take the reins at Stamford Bridge.

In 61 words, the club confirmed the dismissal of the manager who delivered them the Premier League title in his debut season and the FA Cup less than two months ago.

Two trophies in two seasons but the writing was on the wall.

Maurizio Sarri is set to be announced as their new manager imminently, and the club are hoping that his arrival, along with an array of new signings, will help to persuade Eden Hazard to stay put. "I wish you every success in the future".


The 59-year-old has spent the vast majority of managerial career in the lower leagues of Italian football, but has burst onto the scene in the last five years and boy has he made an impression.

Chelsea seeks a 13th permanent manager under Abramovich's ownership, and at possibly the most turbulent period of the Russian billionaire's trophy-filled reign.

Today, Jorginho is on the verge of joining Chelsea...

The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.

Sarri has also presented a list of players he would like to sign.

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