The news is expected to become official sometime today that Chelsea and Antonio Conte have parted company.

The Italian, who has always had a wonderful rapport with the Stamford Bridge support is set to be axed after two seasons in charge during which he has delivered a Premier League title and an FA Cup, a pretty decent haul we believe.

However, it became blatantly obvious last season that all was not as it should be when it came to the relationship between the boss and the Chelsea hierarchy.

Many supporters have found it perplexing that Conte was allowed to return to Cobham to take charge of pre-season training when a change at the managerial helm was imminent.

But, in your view what went so badly wrong for the Italian?

Did Antonio, fall victim of his somewhat brash attitude when it came to dealing with the squad?

Did the manner in which he informed Diego Costa he was heading out of the exit door sow the seeds for his departure?

Did the clubs transfer policy frustrate Conte so much that he felt he had no long-term future at the club and was just waiting for the axe?

Just three questions I can immediately think of, you can probably think of many more.

But, another pertinent question that springs to mind is whether Chelsea have made a huge mistake in axing a boss who, during his managerial career, has shown he is a born winner.
