Chelsea have today confirmed that Antonio Conte has been sacked after the Italian spent two-years in the Blues hot-seat.
History will view Conte has one of our greatest ever managers. He has the highest Premier League win percentage of any Chelsea manager to take charge of over 100 games in the English top-flight.
During his two-seasons as Chelsea manager, he lifted the Premier League title and FA Cup. Unfortunately for Conte, the success he enjoyed on the pitch was not enough to justify his behaviour off of it.
Conte’s relationship with the Chelsea board collapsed entirely during the 2017/18 campaign, with their lack of efficiency in the transfer market being bemoaned time and time again during his press conferences.
Following Chelsea’s failure to defend their Premier League title, as well as falling out of the top four, in a season marred by Conte’s negativity, it fast became clear that he could no longer continue.
Chelsea kept their official statement on his sacking short and sweet, wishing him the best for the future, but thanking him for nothing. The Conte chapter is officially over.
