- Match Analysis
Antonio Conte is mulling legal options against Chelsea as the former Blues boss is seeking his full salary despite leaving the club this summer.
Technically the Italian manager is still contracted with the club and is due to get his full salary. Chelsea appointed Maurizio Sarri to replace Conte but the later had to wait till 55 days since the end of the last season when Chelsea officially announced his departure.
Conte was linked with a number of jobs including the Italian managerial post but his involvement with the Blues saw Roberto Mancini grabbing the job. Conte led the Blues to the Premier League title in his maiden season and his idea to field a three man defence brought a new revelation to the Premier League.
Despite having enormous success in the Premier League, Conte failed to have the same kind of impact in the following season as Chelsea failed to make it to the top four and qualified for the Europa League although they did manage to win the FA Cup after defeating Manchester United in the final.
Conte is demanding his full salary £11.3m and further £8.7m in damages But Chelsea are very reluctant to pay. The West London club have tried to make an out of court settlement but Conte is determined in his stand.
