Chelsea Football Club second by second breaking news

Premier League side, Chelsea have in the last few days been in the news involving the hiring and firing of a new manager.

The long awaited decision on Antonio Conte's future was finally made as the Italian coach was sacked from the club.

Former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri took over from his counterpart after resigning from his position as boss in the Serie A club.

The 57-year-old manager was unveiled on Saturday, July, 14, as his former player Jorginho conducted his medicals.

Moments later the Italy international was unveiled as The Blues' first summer signing under their new manager at Stamford Bridge.

The 25-year-old preferred the London club because he had worked with Sarri as Manchester City who seemed to have convinced the midfielder were neglected by the player.

In the heat of the moment, Conte blasted the club for relieving him of his duties in the dug out after finishing fifth. He said Chelsea were in the gutters when he took over at the Bridge.

"It is great injustice and I will explain the reason why, It's absurd I achieved fifth place, you need to look at this club's history.

"Fifth place is better than the 90 per cent of the seasons Chelsea have ever had. Go to the museum and do your research and while you're there, look at the trophies I won in three years here.

"I won the Premier League the first year, then the FA Cup in the second year.

"Who do Chelsea think they are, Real Madrid?

"When I rocked up here the club were in the gutter. They just finished 10th after Jose Mourinho's shambles, they weren't even in the flipping European League.

"I arrive and what to do you know? Within 12 months, one year, I turned these wasters into Premier League champions," he said.

The former Juventus coach also slammed club owner Roman Abramovic as David Luiz and Willian were not spared in the interview.

"Horrendous players like David Luiz that idiot Willian and even Mr Angry (Abramovic)? And I still won the league.

"Here's my message for Abramovic. Abramovich: You know what you are? You are a big Russian oligarch. You are just a rich knob.head."

Conte also dragged his compatriot Sarri into argument adding Alvaro Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

"Look a the manager you are replacing me with, Maurizio Sarri - Tell me how many trophies he has won in his career? Actually I'll tell you if you let me.

"He's won zero. You are appointing a poor man's version of me. You know that? He's not won any trophies. That's the kind of appointment Tottenham would make.

"Let's see if the bloke can make good defence of David Luiz. Or the pl.anker in the midfield calling himself Tiemoue and misfiring Morata.

"Let's see how you do next season. I hope you get relegated."
