Cesc Fabregas pays tribute to Antonio Conte BEFORE Chelsea confirm sacking

Cesc Fabregas pays tribute to Antonio Conte BEFORE Chelsea confirm sacking

Chelsea have fired manager Antonio Conte after a two-year tenure in which he won the English Premier League and FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is rumoured to be on the verge of being appointed as the new boss at Stamford Bridge.

A statement reads: "Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company.

I wish you every success in the future".

Sarri is set to utilise his Napoli links to bring Jorginho with him to Stamford Bridge, and there have also been suggestions that he could sign Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus.

Giovanni Martusciello, who is now the technical collaborator of Inter Milan, has reportedly turned down the chance to join Maurizio Sarri's coaching staff at Chelsea.

Sarri guided Napoli to a finish of second in Serie A last season.

Conte's future was under scrutiny even as his side beat Manchester United to lift the FA Cup in May but he remained in place at the club.

Terry took to social platform Instagram to post a picture of himself and Conte together with the Premier League title and captioned it with the words: "Thank You Boss".

Conte's position has been under scrutiny since the middle of last season when relations with the board became strained amid a feeble title defence.

Antonio Conte has told me by message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that's it. Conte said he did not count on me for next season.

Only two managers have recorded a better points average than him in the Premier League.

Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard have both been reluctant to commit to fresh deals with Conte still in charge until his departure was announced on Thursday.
