English Premier League club, Chelsea have confirmed that they have sacked manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge of the team.
Another Italian , Maurizio Sarri is now set to take charge of the West London club.
The Blues confirmed Conte’s dismissal via a statement released on their official website on Friday.
“Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company,” the statement read.
“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.”
Conte spent two seasons in charge of the Premier League club, leading them to the title in his first year.
His second campaign, however, proved more problematic, with the Italian unhappy that the club failed to secure several of his top transfer targets.
The results that followed were below par, and the Blues finished fifth in the Premier League and were eliminated from the Champions League by Barcelona at the last-16 stage.
He however led The Blues to beat Manchester United 1-0 in the final of the Emirates FA Cup.
