Chelsea have sacked Antonio Conte and are set to appoint Maurizio Sarri as his replacement. Conte has finally been dismissed after months of uncertainty at Stamford Bridge, although it is not clear yet whether the club have agreed to pay the final year of his salary in full.
Significantly when contacted by Standard Sport this afternoon as to whether Conte had been dismissed, a club spokesman declined to comment. Official conformation is expected soon though.
Conte is understood to have said goodbye to staff at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground earlier today.
