English Premier League outfit Chelsea parted ways with Italian manager Antonio Conte at the opening of the last summer transfer window and brought in Maurizio Sarri from Serie A outfit Napoli as a replacement.
That does not mean that the West London outfit are done with the Italian boss as an agreement has not been reached between the two parties after the club was sued. The Premier League managers’ arbitration tribunal has now been picked to rule on the matter.
It would be recalled that Conte was sacked in July, two years into his running contract with the club with a year left. Antonio Conte has argued that he should be paid the remaining one year as compensation for sacking him.
He argued that the West London outfit refused to sack him until the summer transfer window was almost over when he was unable to secure a new club as he was unavailable during the market.
But the Blues have insisted that he would not be sacked, stressing that his behaviour in the last year he spent at the club put him in a breach of contract as it is claimed that his relationship with senior figures of the club went back.
However, there is a need for the two parties to sort things out before they can finally part ways.
