"During Antonio's time at the club, we won our sixth league title and eighth FA Cup".

As he was still in the final year of a three-season contract, Conte is due a £9m payoff which the club will contest.

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.

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

Traditionally, members of the royal family are supposed to refrain from showing any political views and are not allowed to vote. The original gown has been worn for all Royal christenings since, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren.

Maurizio Sarri has just left Italy by private plane as he heads to England to become the new Chelsea manager.

Juventus' recent dominance of the Italian top flight was nearly ended by Sarri's swashbuckling Napoli side 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.

The chain smoking coach made his name at Empoli where he guided the un-fancied Tuscan team to Serie A before establishing them as one of the most attractive sides in the top flight of Italian football.

Hospital's spokesperson Zulfiqar Ali Baba Khel reportedly said that 13 people died and more than 47 are wounded in the blast. Following the incident, the Election Commission of Pakistan postponed the polls in PK-78 (Peshawar-XIII) constituency.

Like a number of his predecessors, Conte has been dismissed the season after winning a major trophy, pointing to silverware being no guarantee of job security at Stamford Bridge.

Although Chelsea strengthened with the arrival of players such as £60m striker Alvaro Morata, they missed out on other targets, including their former striker Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Old Trafford instead.

The club also recorded the second-highest points tally in a Premier League season.

Incredibly the club have released a statement thanking Conte for his services to the club, but the message only consisted of 52 words.
