Chelsea part ways with manager Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte

Jorginho played an important role in Sarri's Napoli and the deep-lying playmaker is seen as the ideal fit for the high-tempo, possession-based style of play that the new boss is expected to bring to Chelsea.

However, he believes that Sarri's Napoli are one of, if not the, best teams he has faced in his managerial career.

A key piece of evidence will be the text message Conte is reported to have sent Diego Costa while he was a Chelsea player. The Italian departed recently, in a weird manner, after actually reporting back for pre-season and also undertaking the first training sessions with the squad. The 2017-18 campaign though, had little of Conte's magic and worrying signs of a repeat of their 2015-16 season.

Sarri left Napoli after three seasons in Serie A.

City had agreed a £44m deal a fortnight ago for the eight-times capped player according to reports, but apparently withdrew interest when the price rose.

Nancy Sinatra Sr. Dies at 101
When Sinatra shot to fame in the 1940s, the couple relocated to Los Angeles, where their youngest daughter Tina Sinatra was born. Nancy Sinatra Sr ., ex-wife of late singer Frank Sinatra and mother of their three children , has died at age 101.

Sarri, who has risen from the amateur ranks of Italian football, will be working outside of his native country for the first time.

The move follows Sarri's confirmation as Chelsea manager on Saturday morning.

Chelsea were understandably concerned about potential controversy in the future and were eager for Sarri to assure them that his previous comments did not represent his opinion on homosexuals or women.

Pep Guardiola had identified Jorginho, who was born in Brazil, as his top target for the holding midfield role after Yaya Toure's contract ran out, but Chelsea beat City to the punch after appointing Sarri.

Sarri said: 'I am very happy to be coming to Chelsea and the Premier League. Chelsea take on Huddersfield Town in their opening fixture of the new Premier league campaign on August 11.
