The former Italy national team boss spent two years as the Blues manager, he won the EPL title in his debut season and won FA Cup last term Premier League giants Chelsea have terminated Antonio Conte’s contract just two years after taking the job.
The Italian tactician became the Blues manager in the summer of 2016 and won the English topflight title for them in his debut season. He ran into trouble with his employers after his first season at the Stamford Bridge but managed to wrap up the 2017-18 season with silverware – beating Manchester United to win this year’s FA Cup.
Conte has one more season on his deal with the west London club but the club’s chairman Bruce Buck drove to their Cobham training ground this morning to deliver the news to the embattled manager.
He’s a master tactician and a serial winner. Started a small revolution in the PL with his 3-5-2, and I won’t forget what he did for this club.
He could have done great things here but ultimately this is the right move.
