Chelsea blow as Conte wins compo battle


Chelsea must pay out the remaining year of Antonio Conte‘s contract, a tribunal has ruled.

The Blues sacked Conte last summer and have been in a long legal dispute with the former manager.

The Times says Chelsea have been ordered to pay Conte £9m in compensation with the Blues not planning to appeal the verdict.

It’s claimed that an arbitration tribunal was held after Chelsea refused to pay the final year of his salary that Conte believed he was entitled to.

The Blues reportedly believed that Conte’s behaviour last season put him in breach of his contract.

However it’s the manager that has won the case and Conte could now be set to return to management.
