See you in court – aggrieved former Chelsea man prepared for legal battle

Outgoing Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is set to drag Chelsea to court over the club’s refusal to pay the severance fee inserted in his contract.

Conte according to reports from Sky Italia was sacked yesterday with the Blues claiming he was relieved of his duties for “just cause”. This meant that the Italian tactician would not be entitled for any compensation. According to the report, Chelsea claim the infamous fall out between Diego Costa and Conte gives the club the right to relieve the Italian from his post.

Sources close to the Conte reveal that he is angry and has instructed his lawyers to take the case up.

The case is expected to be taken to a tribunal and could lead to an ugly faceoff between Conte and his former employers. It had been widely reported that Conte has a release clause in his contract believed to be worth £9 million.

This latest development would be a sour ending to Conte’s two-year stint with the Stamford Bridge outfit. The 48-year-old’s reign at the Blues have always seemed like a marriage of convenience with several high-profile clashes with players and board.

Despite winning the League and FA Cup in successive seasons, he leaves the club as a villain.
