Inter Coach Martusciello Will Not Join Sarri's Staff At Chelsea

Inter Coach Martusciello Will Not Join Sarri's Staff At Chelsea

According to Italian sources, including Gianluca Di Marzio, Conte is set for a legal battle with his former employers over compensation for the remaining year on his three-year contract with the Blues.

Leaving Stamford Bridge was always the likely outcome for Conte following a season in which Chelsea missed out on Champions League qualification after a fifth-place league finish, 30 points behind champion Manchester City.

Antonio Conte has finally been let go by Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri waiting in the wings as the next Blues boss.

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

After months of speculation, Antonio Conte is no longer Chelsea manager.

The former Italy and Juventus manager guided the club to Premier League success in his inaugural campaign in English football, but failed to retain the title last season, with the club finishing outside the top four. Originally played as a wide-forward, Mertens was integrated within a new attacking system that worked to his favour as the Belgian scored 28 goals in the following year as Napoli finished third in the league.

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.

It is expected that Chelsea will formally unveil Sarri as their new manager in the very near future.

The sacking brings to an end a fractious two-year relationship between Chelsea and Conte.

Jorginho will be a big upgrade and he has the potential to form a devastating partnership alongside N'Golo Kante in the middle of the park next season so I think he'll be a superb signing for Chelsea.
