What Antonio Conte statement says about Blues exit

What Antonio Conte statement says about Blues exit

Chelsea said in a statement on Friday: "Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company.

I wish you every success in the future".

Jorginho was super close to joining the Premier League champions but will now move to London and will link up with his Napoli boss, Maurizio Sarri.

The chain smoking former Empoli manager - who will have to restrain himself on the touchline in England where smoking is banned - was named Serie A Coach of the Year in 2016-17.

Conte was reported to have left the club on Thursday, after two seasons at Stamford Bridge. But who is Sarri and what can Chelsea fans expect from him?

New rules prohibit English clubs from completing new signings after August 9, but they can continue to sell players to foreign clubs until the end of that month.

Stage set for Trump-Putin finale
Even President Donald Trump's strongest supporters have trouble explaining his rhetoric when it comes to Russian Federation . Instead "maybe he should ask Putin to turn over the 12 people indicted to the United States for trial", Podesta said.


The 59-year-old helped establish Napoli as a major threat in European competitions with the club finishing just four points behind Juventus last season.

Premier League giants, Chelsea have officially announced the sacking of their Italian manager, Antonio Conte on their social media handle.

When Carlo Ancelotti was offloaded after two years in May 2011, despite winning the league and cup double in his maiden campaign, Chelsea recognised his "contribution and achievements" and welcomed him back to the club with open arms.

He also clashed with senior players such as Diego Costa and David Luiz while others had begun to grow tired of his methods.

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

Incredibly the club have released a statement thanking Conte for his services to the club, but the message only consisted of 52 words.
