Antonio Conte has relinquished his position as the manager of Chelsea, this is according to a report via twitter.

Conte a barnstorming debut season for Chelsea as he led them to the FA Cup final and their fifth Premier League season. Alas, this season has been torrid for the Italian tactician and speculation are rife that he will not be the manager of Chelsea for next season.

Chelsea have slipped out of the top four on the Premier League log and they are unlikely to end in above Tottenham who are in fourth place and 10 points ahead of on the table.

After being knocked out of the Champions League and other title chase already dead in waters, Chelsea have a chance of clinching the FA Cup with a semi-final game against Southampton in the offing.

There are claims that the Italian manager is no longer in charge of Chelsea but other reports via twitter have debunked the rumours.

Freelance radio reporter Dan Leverne shot down the claims of Pete O’Rourke when he wrote on Twitter too.

Chelsea have been linked with several managers including Carlo Ancelotti, Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique but it is left to be seen who takes over the managerial baton from him.
