Chelsea head coach, Antonio Conte has been relieved of his position following a two-year stint with the Premier League club.

Conte, who led Chelsea to a Premier League victory in 2017 and won them the FA Cup last season, had been in frequent disagreements with higher authorities at the club over issues such as transfer policy.

The position is set to be filled by Maurizio Sarri who has since been in talks with the club.

Conte reportedly has 12 months left in his contract with the club and may be compensated for that period, if such agreement is reached.
