There is going to be a court battle, be sure of it, that's why they won't thank him.

Lets hope we use the same briefs as in the Mou Vs Eva malarky. Never found out how much she got but a waste of time as settled out of court as I hope this will be. just an embarrassment

I remember a few years ago, don’t remember who was sacked but roman came down to the training ground and said something like player power won’t keep ousting managers and that was the last time they win. That was wrong. While Antonio can’t just blame the players, the board but also himself, the culture needs to change because the players know that if they don’t like a manager they will outlast him. That’s something engrained in the clubs dna and it needs to stop. I’m fed up of it. 

Conte and Jose's downfalls had nothing to do with player power.As for AVB, i can't speak for you but im glad the players won that battle.

Thank you Antonio for the two trophies and a wonderful 2016/17 season and also, good riddance for all the BS moments.

I don't understand why they credit Conte with the last transfer bit. It's well established transfers were the main reasons why him and the board fell out, he has nothing to do with those figures. Random...

Sad how he went especially as he had a point and not the first to say it... But can't really say those things and not expect backlash. 

So animated on the touchline so hopefully he still will be wherever he goes 

Good Times.. Mostly... Still we won the league again..

CLASS!!

 

CONTE RELEASES STATEMENT

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has released a statement through the League Managers Association after being dismissed by the club last week. 

He said: “I would like to thank all of my friends at Chelsea Football Club for their hard work and support over the past two seasons which enabled us to win the Premier League and FA Cup together. 
 
“To the players, whose talent and commitment was so important to our successes, I thank them for everything. It has been a pleasure working with them every day. To my staff, who always worked so hard, I must say thank you and well done for their professionalism and dedication throughout.
 
“I have enjoyed my time in England and London so much and I want to thank the Chelsea fans who have been amazing to me and my Family. It was fantastic for me to be able to share my emotions, passion and enthusiasm throughout two unforgettable seasons with these amazing Chelsea supporters, who will always stay in my heart.
 
“I hope Chelsea will continue to be successful and I wish everyone well for next season. I have made many memories during my time with Chelsea, which I will take with me into my next challenge.”

 

 

Its a shame how it ended but the guy has got so much class.

He could have taken a parting shot, he was sacked after one day of pre-season work, which is quite ridiculous but he didn't. He had a moan and groan last season and I honestly expected something similar in this statement or a double ended sword of some sorts but testament to the guy he didn't and I think the majority of the fans will miss him.

Its a pity last season didn't work out because we all know how good the first year was. Best of luck to him as well, guys an outstanding manager and 2 seasons in England he has given a lot not only to the PL but European football as a whole, just look at how many teams have all of a sudden reignited playing 3-4-3 or 3-5-2. Even England? They kept talking about Pep influencing Gareth Southgate, him picking his brain etc but I generally seen more of a Conte influence in that team than a Pep one, a team that would work hard, play to its strengths and as he would usually say "were prepared to suffer" when they had to. 

That Everton game is probably the best I've seen us play in years and I don't think many will top it, although I have big hopes for Sarri.

To be fair, I don't think he was gonna take a parting shot (or at least allowed to) in a statement released via LMA. If anything, he might do it when asked about his sacking/departure back in Italy.

I really don't understand why people think this kind of statement is "class act". Its pretty obvious its a pr statement made by pr people. After all Conte right now is a football manager without a job, and its natural that he must leave the impression that he doesn't have bitter feelings towards his former employers.

Conte probably didn't even write this stuff, and only gave the "ok" for the the pr people who are paid to write formal and "class" official statements.

You went so brutal there...

However at the same time you're right on this. Hard to believe Conte himself wrote that statement.

Totally agree doesn't matter what walk of life your from golden rule never slag off your former employers. Must clubs have gagging clauses Chelsea have had them since Bates and when you think of the revolving door of managers we've had I can't recall any of them bad mouthing Chelsea.

I cant see what peeps think about this is BS

He thanks his FRIENDS, STAFF,players WITH COMMITMENT and FANS.

He never mentions Roman or the board. So OK it might have been touched up to help his english but I understood what he meant.
