Blues Legend John Terry Pays Fitting Tribute to Antonio Conte

ESPN pundit Stewart Robson

Former Chelsea club captain John Terry has paid a fitting tribute to Antonio Conte, who was sacked as manager of the club on Thursday in a decision that was highly expected from ardent fans of the club.

That is all about to change though with the Italian heading to London to sign a deal to replace Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge but to many on these shores, the former Napoli boss remains something of a mystery.

Chelsea have officially announced the departure of Antonio Conte from the Premier League club.

"Thank you Mister for another Premier League title and FA Cup", tweeted Fabregas.

Chelsea began a terse, four-sentence statement on its website, "Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company".

The Italian had two contrasting campaigns at the helm as he over a team that finished 10th in the Premier League as defending champions and turned them around immediately to reclaim the title in 2016/17.

"I wish you every success in the future". 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. He had been waiting since winning the FA Cup in May to resolve his future at Stamford Bridge, but difficulty in securing Sarri delayed the process. Conte's relationship with Chelsea's hierarchy was strained after disagreements over their transfer policy last season.

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.

Conte's volcanic intensity also alienated some insiders, including leading players whose discontent filtered out.
