Chelsea FC has confirmed sacking manager Antonio Conte. The Italian was informed on Thursday of his departure.

Antonio Conte has been in charge at Stamford Bridge for two years. Despite beating Manchester United to win the FA Cup final at the end of last season, the Italian has been dismissed after the club finished fifth in the Premier League. After winning the title in his first season in charge, Conte has fallen out with the Chelsea board this term and bemoaned the deficiency of world-class signings in his squad.

During the transfer window, Conte spoke frequently about his lack of involvement in the recruitment process and his remarks are said to have created a mood of negativity around the club.
