Antonio Conte sends classy message to Chelsea fans after Blues sacking

It is being rumoured that the clubs put together a gentleman agreement that will prevent the English team from going after other players besides Jorginho, whose acquisition is already official.

"Maurizio's Napoli side played some of the most exciting football in Europe, impressing with their attacking approach and dynamism, and his coaching methods significantly improved the players at his disposal".

The former Juventus and Italy boss had 12 months remaining on his £9million-a-year contract and is seeking compensation in full up front from Chelsea, rather than on a month-by-month basis.

Finishing fifth in the league in 2017-18, missing out on Champions League qualification, and friction with the Chelsea hierarchy and influential players prompted Conte's departure after two seasons.

Sarri assured his new Blues bosses that both sets of comments did not represent his views and that they were ill-judged, and poorly worded. "And probably I want also to win something", Sarri said. He will certainly be a distinctive character in the era of the "super coach" in the Premier League, with his managerial rivals including Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Juergen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.

"I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea", Jorginho told the Chelsea website.

For Sarri to feel at home on the blue side of London, Chelsea will need to prepare a smoking area for their habitual smoking manager.

He always seemed to enjoy himself at Stamford Bridge, and now, he has released a moving statement thanking all involved during his time at the helm of Chelsea.

"To my staff, who always worked so hard, I must say thank you and well done for their professionalism and dedication throughout", concluded Conte.

Antonio Conte was magnanimous about his time at Chelsea and made no reference to any ill-feeling in a statement issued by the League Managers' Association following his sacking.

Chelsea have appointed 59-year-old Italian coach, Maurizio Sarri as the 9th manager in the Roman Abramovich era to replace Antoni Conte who leaves the Stamford Bridge after two seasons, winning the Premier League and FA Cup.
