If report emanating from Italian club Napoli is anything to believe, Chelsea fans will have new manager tomorrow as reports claimed that Antonio Conte has been sacked in the early hours of today.
According to Napoli president Laurentiis Aurelio, the Blues have sacked Antonio Conte due to his poor run of results throughout last season coupled with his relationship with his players.
Aurelio , who shares intimate relationship with Chelsea owner Roman Abrahimovic, revealed that Maurizio Sarri would be unveiled as Chelsea boss in coming days.
To be fair with the Italian manager, he hasn’t done too badly as Chelsea manager since he takes over from Mourinho in 2016.
He led the team from the seventh position to became League Champions in the space of 38 matches in his first season at Stamford Bridge.
During his second spell at the club — last season, he helped the team clinched FA Cup trophy at the expense of Manchester United. Two trophies in two seasons isn’t a little feat to achieve despite all odds.
However, Conte’s relationship with his employers seems to be the main reason behind the club’s decision to sack him despite his good run of results.
The former Juventus manager is known for throwing a jibe at the Blues hierarchy throughout the previous campaign.
Should Sarri finally make his long-awaited switch to Stamford Bridge, he is expected lure Gonzalo Higuain, Daniele Rugani and probably Paulo Dybala to the Stamford Bridge Stadium.

Besiktas are showing interest in signing Chelsea player and World Cup winner Olivier Giroud.
The Chelsea forward’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season but unless the London Club renews his contract, he would have to join the Turkish club.

Loads of talent: will he join Chelsea or Liverpool next summer?
Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Liverpool sent scouts to watch Queen Park Rangers wonder kid Eberechi Eze.
Eze is in a brilliant form which skyrocketed the scouts to sit in observation as they watched him play against Millwall on Monday night at Loftus Road.
Eberechi stole the show while he scored in the very match that saw his team earned the much-needed victory.
The young star has been bright and impressive while playing behind the striker in the championship. Whilst his club was tipped to be listed among the relegated team this season, he has given QPR a dazzling hope of his conservative performance.
The diminutive, conservative and skilful player has entertained his fans with three goals which makes him a potential player to leave his current club sooner or rather than later.
On different club’s perspective; Chelsea is keen on adding young talents to their squad; Maurizio Sarri will be considered lucky with plenty options to pick from while Mauricio Pochettino is in need of attackers due to lack of extra legs in his team.
Liverpool have a host of brilliant talent but it will be very competitive for the QPR player to join with Saido Mane, Mo Salah, Daniel Sturridge, Divork Origi and co in a very tough role already mastered by Klopp’s triumvirate.
While Man City still have quality young players from the bench who are yet to stamp their shirt in Pep Guardiola’s radar.
For Eze to get a grip on any of the aforementioned club, he has to be very good.
PAOK 0 : 1 Chelsea: How Willian helped Sarri’s continued 100% winning form.
Chelsea continued their 100% winning run as Willian got the only goal against PAOK.
Maurizio Sarri’s men travelled to PAOK who already saw a win against Crete on Saturday ahead of the clash against Chelsea.
The early goal came in the 7th minute from a superb attack when Willian latched onto an excellent pass by Ross Barkley as he fired it low into the net.
a few minutes later, Alvaro Morata would have extended the lead with a shot that almost brushed the goal post, but his effort was abortive.
Why Pedro and Morata came close to scoring in the 39 minutes Alexandros Paschalakis denied their efforts with a superb save.
From the stat, Chelsea took the lion share of the possession, more shots on target, most corner kicks as they were completely dominant throughout with a slim lead.
A match bossed by Willian and Pedro, influenced by key passes from Jorginho and possessed by N’golo Kante without the help of Eden Hazard shows that the 59-year-old boss is a genius in his tactics.
Fabregas made his first start of the season under Maurizio Sarri after coming in to replace Jorginho ahead Ruben Loftus-Cheek who sat on the bench with Victor Moses.
The Blues will now travel to West Ham in a Stadium where they lost 1:0 last season under then manager Antonio Conte as they look to continue their winning form, while West Ham already got the first win for club manager Manuel Pellegrini against Everton last week.
