Chelsea To Use Diego Costa Text In Case Against Antonio Conte

Adjust Comment Print

Conte took training when some of the Chelsea squad returned for pre-season this week but has always been expected to be replaced this summer.

It has been widely expected that Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri would be Conte's replacement, although Chelsea have struggled to come to an agreement with the Serie A club over his release.

With the departure of Antonio Conte this week, Chelsea are ready to back Sarri in the market.

The Italian boss joined Chelsea in 2016 and led them to the league title in his debut season along with an FA Cup triumph last campaign.

Hull said that when jail officials learned Manafort was communicating by email, his attorneys were told to stop the practice. They added that Manafort did not raise questions about his access to his attorneys or documents to prepare his defense.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career", the statement read.

Carlo Ancelotti replaced Sarri as Napoli coach following the end of the season, with a Chelsea move having been on the cards since Conte's relationship with the club's senior management turned sour in 2017-18. Only the pay was improved, though, with Conte's contract still running for just another two seasons - hardly a show of commitment by either the club or its manager.

Trophies: Premier League 2016/2017, FA Cup 2018.

It is expected that Chelsea will formally unveil Sarri as their new manager in the very near future. The team will now play in the Europa League.

Sarri will have less than a month to prepare for the new season, with Sky Italia reporting that a deal has now been agreed - blurry photos of Sarri outside Stamford Bridge where also published by Italian website GianlucaDiMarzio.

That is not Chelsea's usual protocol and it is also believed lawyers are still haggling over how much to pay the former Juventus and Italy manager.

Recall that Conte was sacked after spending two years at the Stamford Bridge.
