Antonio Conte, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during two years with Chelsea, has been sacked as the club’s manager.

The 48-year-old Italian, who had a year left on his contract, took pre-season training earlier this week.

He is set to be replaced by former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri, according to reports.

“Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company,” the club said in a statement.

“During Antonio’s time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup.

“In the title-winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories.

“We wish Antonio every success in his future career.”
