Chelsea have sacked manager Antonio Conte after two years in charge.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas  thanked Conte on social media and wished him “luck for the future”.

Ex-Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is expected to take over from Conte, who took pre-season training this week.

Should Sarri be appointed, he would be Chelsea’s ninth full-time manager since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.

During three years with Napoli, Sarri has not won a major honour but has guided the club to finishes of second, third and second again – behind Juventus in 2017-18.
