Antonio Conte Reportedly No Longer Chelsea Manager

To the surprise of absolutely no-one, Antonio Conte is no longer Chelsea manager.

Being honest, how it's taken this long for him to be dismissed is very bizarre but Sky in Italy are reporting that he has been given the boot.

The former Juventus manager guided the Blues to a memorable Premier League title win in his first season at the helm, with his side finishing on 93 points after an incredible run of consistency.

However, a limp defence of the crown last term, where Chelsea could only qualify for the Europa League and finished a whopping 30 points behind Pep Guardiola's record-breaking Manchester City, saw the pressure pile on Conte.

He made it two trophies from two as his team beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final but it wasn't enough to save his job.

Maurizio Sarri has been in the frame for the job at Stamford Bridge a while now and the announcement of him as manager would appear to be imminent.
