Chelsea sack manager Antonio Conte

The Blues are now expected to appoint Sarri, who recently left Napoli, which led to a contract wrangle with the Italian club, although the saga is nearing a conclusion.

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.

Sarri has been favourite to succeed his compatriot after impressing as manager of Serie A side Napoli, who have replaced him with former Chelsea handler Carlo Ancelotti. It wasn't easy for me to convince you in the beginning but in the end I hope I did you proud! "It wasn't the enthusiastic Antonio that we saw in the first season".

Conte's future with the Roman Abramovich-owned club has looked uncertain for months, however, with Chelsea failing to qualify for the coming season's Champions League after finishing fifth last term.

"Thank You Boss", Terry posted on Instagram alongside a photo of the two of them holding the Premier League trophy.

The 11th seed produced a stunning display of power hitting from the back of the court to leave Ostapenko a very frustrated figure. In the second set, the left-handed Kerber quickly went into the lead with Ostapenko choosing to live as dangerously as before.

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. Each of these three players, among others, thrived under the tutelage of Sarri and that will be fascinating for Chelsea fans heading into the new ere.

Chelsea fly in the face of the game's old logic that stability is the bedrock of success.

Maurizio Sarri reportedly agrees a deal to become the new head coach of Chelsea with club legend Gianfranco Zola returning to Stamford Bridge as assistant.

Then, as has happened so often at Chelsea, it turned sour quickly.
