Chelsea part ways with manager Antonio Conte

However, the Italian, who is expected to be replaced by former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri in the near future, is said to be 'disgusted' with his treatment from the West London club.

"Chelsea Football Club and Antonio Conte have parted company", a brief statement read.

The former Juventus coach won the Premier League title in his first season, but that initial success was soured by an off-the-field power struggle over the club's transfer policy.

Conte's future with the Roman Abramovich-owned club has looked uncertain for months, however, with Chelsea failing to qualify for the coming season's Champions League after finishing fifth last term.

Conte leaves with the best win percentage 65.1 per cent of any of Chelsea's managers in the Premier League era.

Terry - who brought the curtain down on his Chelsea career after that title triumph - paid tribute to Conte on Instagram.

A working visit means that Trump will not be hosted by the queen and will not stay at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle. Sarah Elliott, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas UK, told CNN she did not think Trump would be fazed by the stunt.

Chelsea released a short statement which was less than 60 words, which failed to thank the manager for his contributions and which has been slammed as classless by many fans.

Sarri, 59, led Napoli to two second-place and one third-place finish in three seasons in charge.

The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.

He was in charge of the Italian national team before taking over at the Bridge in 2016.

Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola and Giovanni Martusciello are expected to join Sarri's backroom staff while Italian-Brazilian midfielder, Jorginho, is now undergoing a medical at Cobham and will also follow Sarri from Naples to London.

Sarri has also presented a list of players he would like to sign.
