According to multiple reports in England and Italy, Chelsea have sacked their Manager, Antonio Conte.
Conte, who revolutionized how Chelsea played in his two seasons at the London club, introduced the 3-5-2 formation to the blues, where Nigeria’s Victor Moses thrived.
The Italian led the team to a league title in his first season and also reached the FA Cup final; the latter he won in his second year.
News of Conte’s sack has been making the rounds for several months, but Chelsea are yet to officially confirm.

Meanwhile, the former Azzurri boss will get a £9million severance payment from Chelsea for the severing ties.
It is expected that in the coming days Chelsea will also announce the appointment of Conte’s replacement with former SSC Napoli Manager, Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea players resumed pre season last week and expect the new Manager will resume work, taking charge of the team’s overseas pre season tour of Australia.
