Chelsea's incredibly short send off to Antonio Conte

Chelsea' look set to have a new manager and first summer signing in place in the very near future.
The former Napoli coach signed the deal to take over from Antonio Conte following a two-and-a-half hour meeting with Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia at Stamford Bridge on Friday night.
Conte's relationship with the Chelsea hierarchy had soured in the final year at the helm of the club regarding transfers.
Antonio Conte's protracted divorce from Chelsea was finalised on Friday (Saturday NZ Time) 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.
That success was helped by prolific striker Diego Costa, who scored 20 goals and provided eight assists. Only the pay was improved, though, with Conte's contract still running for just another two seasons - hardly a show of commitment by either the club or its manager.
Media reports said Conte's departure would take to 85 million pounds the amount Chelsea has spent on paying off sacked managers - nearly the record fee Manchester United paid in 2016 for France midfielder Paul Pogba.
The off-field controversies bled onto the pitch and the west Londoners flattered to deceive. In the title winning season, the club set a then-record 30 wins in a 38-game Premier League season, as well as a club-record 13 consecutive league victories. "I wish you every success in the future".
Sarri, who split his time between banking and playing football before he took up coaching aged 40, has not won a major honour in three years at Napoli but has guided the club to finishes of second, third and second again. He was replaced by former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti in May with the Naples club seeking to end Juventus' dominance in the league.
The main reason for the prolonged saga has been compensation.
The former Napoli boss will be joined by Chelsea hero Gianfranco Zola as his assistant.
He also clashed with senior players such as Diego Costa and David Luiz while others had begun to grow tired of his methods.
Sarri could be followed by midfielder Jorginho from Napoli, with Chelsea willing to pay £50m, plus £7m in bonuses, for the pair. Gianfranco Zola could also return to Chelsea as part of the backroom or technical staff.
