Jorginho chose Chelsea because they offered him more money

Chelsea sack Conte after months of uncertainty Cesc Fabregas pays tribute to Antonio Conte BEFORE Chelsea confirm sacking

Chelsea haven't even announced Antonio Conte's departure yet, but the saga looks set to run for that bit longer.

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

Conte thanked his players, staff and the Blues fans, adding: "It was fantastic for me to be able to share my emotions, passion and enthusiasm throughout two unforgettable seasons with these awesome Chelsea supporters, who will always stay in my heart".

Former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is officially the successor to another Italian at Premier League side Chelsea and well, it's safe to say that the 59-year-old is a huge personality.

"We have no doubt that Antonio will go on to achieve many more successes in his career".

Chelsea have sacked Antonio Conte and are believed to have reached an agreement with Napoli to pave the way for Sarri to replace his fellow Italian at Stamford Bridge.




Chelsea FC ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table last season as they missed out on Champions League qualification.

I'm not sure if he'll need bodyguards, either, but Sarri was certainly optimistic about a new chapter in his life and reckons Chelsea should be competing for trophies in the coming months.

Nearly two months later Chelsea are looking for a 13th permanent boss of Roman Abramovich's ownership, which began in June 2003.

The former Italy manager had a year remaining on his current contract and had already taken charge of pre-season preparations at the club's Cobham training ground outside London.

Manchester City are said to be "furious" at "unprofessional" Napoli for going back on an agreement to sell Jorginho to the Premier League champions, after the midfielder today joined Chelsea.
