London, Chelsea have finally sacked Antonio
Conte as this step will pave the way for Maurizio Sarri to replace him.
The Telegraph reported that Roman Abramovich has risked paying
Conte his full Pound 9million compensation bill with the Italian ready to take
a year out if no big jobs become available.
Abramovich held off sacking Conte to see if a job became available
that would save Chelsea having to pay him off, but the club have been
left with little choice but to act – despite the Italian returning to take
pre-season training since Monday.
