Chelsea sack manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea sack manager Antonio Conte

Conte delivered trophies in his two years at Chelsea but also brought controversy.

Sarri will arrive having left Napoli in May while Zola's most recent role came as manager of Birmingham City between December 2016 and April 2017.

The ex-Juventus and Italy coach's future had been under fierce speculation for months after he failed to follow up a Premier League-winning debut campaign with success in 2017-18. In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories.

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