Chelsea have confirmed the sack of Antonio Conte just after two years in charge of the club.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has reacted sadly to the news while hailing Conte for the major impact he had on English football. Carragher pointed out that Conte’s three at the back system changed the game in England.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “Losing Antonio Conte is a big blow for the Premier League. I think he’s been brilliant.

“He changed to three at the back at Chelsea and it seemed like the whole country changed to it – even England did.

“He’s had a major impact in English football. To come in and win the league then the FA Cup in your first two years is some achievement.

“You always think with Chelsea, ‘how can they lose this top manager and bring another one in’ but they’ve always done it and carried on being successful. It’s the Roman Abramovich way.

“It will be tough to replicate what Conte did as the competition is so fierce with Manchester City pushing on.”
