Sad for Conte, excited for Sarri, embarrassed by the board: Chelsea fans react to Conte sacking
- The much-anticipated announcement has sparked some completely opposite opinions from the Blues' supporters who have shared their feelings via Twitter
'Most are glad'.
Anyway, most people are glad Conte is gone because the focus can be back on on-field matters, we'll have new tactics, there can be more positivity around the club & players can be told they're great (even if they're not, it builds confidence). Club is now prolonging disruption.— Grant James (@grantdesmidt) July 13, 2018
Some do not like the prospect of Sarri taking it over at Stamford Bridge.
I'll remember this when Sarri wins NOTHING at Chelsea.— Yousaf (@Yousaf_S_1987) July 13, 2018
A bitter but right decision.
We’ve seen this before, it was bitter behind the scenes so it was the right decision #cfc— CFC DAILY (@CFCDaily) July 13, 2018
Thank you Don Conte pic.twitter.com/4U0ZjtcJGB— 🇫🇷 ʍԹαtհαη 🇫🇷 (@mpathan2911) July 13, 2018
Some fans are clearly happy 'this guy' has gone.
This guy deliberately sabotaged Chelsea's season and cost the club a top 4 place— Leo Sat (@ItsMrBlueGuy) July 13, 2018
This guy cost the club millions over the Costa saga
This guy lost the dressing room and top plyaers would've left if he stayed
Anyone who thinks this isn't the right decision needs their head checked
Some will miss his charisma.
I wanted Chelsea to score just to watch you celebrate on the touchline. Your charisma was so infectious, a total joy to watch. You will be sorely missed. Goodbye Antonioooo! 😢💔 #Grazie pic.twitter.com/3B8XR9Tkqz— Jide Samuel Adigun (@MuzikalJaydon) July 13, 2018
The lads are fairly questioning the way Chelsea have things done.
Confirmation of what the whole world knew yesterday. 😞— Chelsea FC Fan Club (@ConteBlueArmy) July 13, 2018
Conte might have still managed to make the Blues better.
As a #CFC fan, I want to personally thank Antonio Conte on what he has done at Chelsea. Winning @premierleague & @EmiratesFACup are great achievements.@ChelseaFC were rock bottom when he took over. For that, I'm truly grateful.— Red Rose 💎 (@Roseangel009) July 13, 2018
He left CFC better than he met them.#ForzaConte 👊 pic.twitter.com/7rwQhztF3l
Grateful for Conte but excited for Sarri.
Conte is gone after winning the Premier League in his 1st year and the FA Cup in his 2nd. Regardless of whether we agreed with his coaching style, let's be grateful for the trophies he won.— Gary (@RampantBlue) July 13, 2018
We now welcome Sarri and his attractive football. Let's hope he can get the trophies too.
It’s about time you released a statement, absolutely embarrassing way to treat a trophy winning manager. Then again, we sacked Carlo in a tunnel, always classy when it comes to managers.— Greg Murray (@GMurray93) July 13, 2018
Anyway, thanks for the memories, Mister! For that one especially.
Thank you, Antonio!— Hussein Osman (@murandid) July 13, 2018
