Sacked Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will reportedly take legal action against former employers because of the amount of time it took to sack him.
Antonio Conte was finally sacked last week, 55 days after the Blues’ 2017-18 campaign ended with victory in the FA Cup final.
Chelsea stalled over their decision as Maurizio Sarri, the favoured candidate to succeed Conte at Stamford Bridge, was still technically under contract with Napoli.
Only after buying out Sarri’s contract could the Premier League giants push ahead with dismissing their manager of two years, and The Times claims that a court case may now be forthcoming.
Conte, already entitled to a £9m compensation package, is said to be ‘furious and disgusted’ that Chelsea waited nearly two months to make the call, which he believes cost him the chance to take up another job in the early weeks of the summer.
