Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has expressed his disapproval of how Maurizio Sarri has been treated at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian insists that Sarri should’ve been treated with more respect for what he has managed to achieve during the season – to finish third in the Premier League, reach Carabao Cup final and win the Europa League.

Conte said: “I think he [Sarri] needs more respect for what he has done at Chelsea.

For sure, last season was a success and I was shocked that they let him leave.”

So, Antonio Conte is taking another dig at Chelsea football club, with which he waged a legal war since the moment he was fired in 2018.

In May 2019, the Blues were ordered to pay the Italian £9m in compensation for breaching the conditions of the contract between the club and the manager.

However, the 50-year-old is still ‘taking further legal action against Chelsea’ despite receiving a certain compensation.

Currently, Antonio Conte is a manager at Inter Milan, while Maurizio Sarri coaches a rival Juventus.
