"We won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup".

It's always been known that Conte would be dismissed with Sarri the favoured replacement, yet it was somehow allowed to get to the stage where the former Italy coach took the first three days of pre-season training before being dismissed.

The former Napoli coach signed the deal to take over from Antonio Conte following a two-and-a-half hour meeting with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.

"Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company", a brief statement read.

Conte spent two seasons in charge of the Premier League club, leading them to the title in his first year.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career".

Chelsea will try to convince Hazard that the appointment of Sarri, together with a number of new signings including Jorginho, Daniele Rugani and Aleksandr Golovin can help the club challenge for the top titles again.

But, despite winning the FA Cup last season - beating Manchester United in the final, Chelsea have ditched Conte ahead of the new campaign. "Great man, Great manager".

The 59-year-old coach was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti in Naples this summer but he wasn't released from his contract.

The former Empoli boss is not known as a big spender which might fit with the slightly more modern Chelsea era of tighter spending.

The former Napoli boss will be joined by Chelsea hero Gianfranco Zola as his assistant.

They reportedly include Brazil-born Italy worldwide midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, CSKA Moscow´s Russian playmaker Aleksandr Golovin and Italian defender Daniele Rugani from Juventus, the side that edged Napoli in the Serie A title race.
