Chelsea's incredibly short send off to Antonio Conte

Conte produced a record 30 Premier League wins during his maiden season, which has since been thwarted by Manchester City's 32 victories last season, while he now boasts Chelsea's longest consecutive league wins with 13.

The statement on the club's website read: 'During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup.

Winning the FA Cup against former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in May was scant consolation to finishing 30 points behind champions Manchester City in the league. "Great man, Great manager".

The former Manchester City boss claimed Sarri called him a "p***" and a "f*****" during a touchline confrontation. He has penned a three-year deal with Chelsea.

Two trophies in two seasons but the writing was on the wall.

The club's 64-word announcement was eventually made on Friday (Saturday NZT), ending with: "We wish Antonio every success in his future career".

Sarri is central to Chelsea's 14th change of coach since Roman Abramovich arrived in 2003, although yet again there will be a costly severance payment to the outgoing coach. Chelsea also halted plans to redevelop Stamford Bridge, citing an unfavorable climate to invest in the £500 million (NZ$986 million) project.

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

Sarri's future has been up in the air since Napoli hired Carlo Ancelotti as their new coach in May. The 26-year-old was a star player for Maurizio Sarri's side that pushed Juventus all the way in the Serie A title race last season. Let's hope he can get us playing like Napoli!

Even so, Jorginho said: 'I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea.
