Conte Thanks Chelsea For Two Unforgettable Seasons In EPL

Gonzalo Higuain of Juventus celebrates after scoring a goal during the serie A match between Juventus and US Sassuolo

The 59-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea's head coach, ending his 13-year spell in Italy, where he worked at nine different clubs.

"I am absolutely ecstatic to be here at Chelsea", Jorginho said.

Sarri's appointment was confirmed on Saturday morning, and he said that he is looking forward "to starting work and meeting the players".

Conte thanked his players, staff and the Blues fans - and perhaps the omission of the Chelsea board and owner Roman Abramovich was deliberate and notable.

Conte also won the Premier League in his first season in charge, which began with many believing Chelsea were in crisis. Bringing in Milinkovic-Savic and Jorginho to play alongside N'Golo Kante could go some way to turning Chelsea into a force again as they look to rebuild under Sarri.

"I hope we can provide some entertaining football for our fans, and that we will be competing for trophies at the end of the season, which is what this club deserves", Sarri told Chelsea's official website.

But Sarri can not concern himself about Abramovich's long-term interest, following the Russian billionaire's visa dispute with the United Kingdom authorities, or the indefinite postponement of plans to rebuild Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho has also made the move from Naples, with the midfielder quickly becoming the first signing of the Sarri era at Stanford Bridge.

"I have enjoyed my time in England and London so much and I want to thank the Chelsea fans who have been incredible to me and my family".

Sarri will be speaking ahead of Chelsea travelling to Western Australia for the July 23 friendly with Perth Glory. The Italian was eventually sacked with Chelsea issuing a 52-word statement of the news. "I have made many memories during my time with Chelsea, which I will take with me into my next challenge", explained the Italian coach.

Conte is reportedly prepared to wait for a high-calibre position, with no obvious attractive vacancy at present.

'We wish Antonio every success in his future career'.
