Chelsea's incredibly short send off to Antonio Conte

  • Napoli star Jorginho

Conte is not happy at how his dismissal was handled, particularly after he came back to take pre-season training at Cobham this week.

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

Chelsea are also closing in on their first major summer signing of the transfer window, with Napoli midfielder Jorginho set to follow his former manager to the Premier League club.

"We wish Antonio every success in his future career". Only the pay was improved, though, with Conte's contract still running for just another two seasons - hardly a show of commitment by either the club or its manager.

Kei Nishikori bows out in four sets in Wimbledon quarterfinals
He came into the match having won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon, a run he stretched to 34 before faltering. Early on he was bothered by the glare off the sun, adjusting his serve and then sporting a cap.

However, while present players may have had issues with Conte, former Chelsea legend John Terry, who left after the league title winning campaign had nothing but praise for him.

Chelsea, who have also been in protracted negotiations with former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri whose appointment is imminent, may have been hoping Conte would find another job before they had to act.

The Blues are acting on the orders of incoming head coach Maurizio Sarri and opened talks with Higuain's representatives this month.

Therefore, Chelsea are being forced to pay Napoli a fee to secure Sarri's services.

Federer qualifies for Wimbledon quarter-finals without dropping a set
Federer won his eighth title at the All England Club in 2017 and has played four consecutive games on Centre Court this year. Elsewhere, Milos Raonic beat Mackenzie McDonald in four sets to reach the quarter-finals for the third year in a row.

But Goal understands that Conte now no longer in charge at Stamford Bridge, and that he wants a £9 million ($12m) severance package as compensation.

At times during the Sarri reign, Napoli played an nearly mesmeric style of football which was just about the most attractive in Europe.

Before joining Chelsea, Conte had only coached in his native Italy, leading Juventus to three consecutive Serie A titles from 2012-14 before taking over the national team at Euro 2016.

Of course there's no official word from the Brazil's camp as yet - so no way of knowing if the video is legitimate. Brazil's shock exit after being beat 2-1 by Belgium last night saw thousands of fans turn to Twitter to gloat.
