‘They can’t even say thank you, no class’, ‘Shame of London’ – Some Chelsea fans attack club after Conte sacking

Possibly one of football’s worst kept secrets was finally revealed earlier today when Chelsea announced Antonio Conte’s departure from the club after two seasons in charge.

The former Italy manager took charge in 2016 and led the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season winning 30 games and was a popular figure with some fans and football pundits with his fresh tactics and touchline passion.

However, the 48-year-old cut a frustrated figure this season, both on and off the pitch, as his side missed out on Champions League qualification.

Despite their poor showings in the league, they still ended the season with silverware when they defeated former manager Jose Mourinho’s side Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

Some Blues fans were clearly disappointed at the apparent lack of class from the club after they released a 52-word statement – which did not appear to thank the Italian for his efforts.
