Antonio Conte's protracted divorce from Chelsea was finalized on Friday when he was sacked after a two-year tenure in which he won the English Premier League and FA Cup but failed to gain the power he craved at the London club.

Chelsea players took to training on Friday morning for the first time without manager Antonio Conte, after the Italian was officially axed from his post at the helm of Stamford Bridge.

"Chelsea football club and Antonio Conte have parted company", read a statement on the club's official website.

The Italian coach joined Chelsea in 2016 and led them to the league title in his debut season along with an FA Cup triumph last campaign.

Maurizio Sarri will not be taking his old backroom staff from Napoli to Chelsea and is only bringing in Gianfranco Zola as his number two.

The club have handled Conte's departure terribly over the last few months.

Beijing has not yet responded because it doesn't import enough from the United States to match the $US200b figure. Brent crude fell $2.51 to $76.30 a barrel by 11.30 pm, IST, while U.S. crude was down $1.74 at $72.37 a barrel.

The exuberant, passionate and, at times, bonkers Italian was popular among many Chelsea fans and there was lots of support for him after his tenure finally came to an end.

Sarri's got a buyout clause at Napoli rumoured to be in the region of €8 million while Conte will get a hefty severance package as well so the "switch" won't come cheap for the West Londoners.

Former banker Sarri, 59, will be Chelsea's ninth full-time manager since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.

Chelsea believe Conte's behaviour effectively breached the terms of his contract as manager.

"Thanks for everything Boss", said Terry.

That speculation only intensified when Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas and former Chelsea captain John Terry paid tribute to Conte on social media.
