Conte wins legal battle against Chelsea for unfair sacking

Former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been awarded maximum compensation in unfair dismissal case against Chelsea.

An employment tribunal ruled in Conte's favour and Judge Andrew Glennie ordered Chelsea to pay £85,000 to him for unfair dismissal in July 2018.

"The complaint of unfair dismissal is well-founded," he said.

"The respondent (Chelsea) shall pay to the claimant (Conte) a basic award of £1,524 and a compensatory award of £83,682, being a total of £85,206."

"Written reasons will not be provided unless a request is presented by either party within 14 days."

Last August, Antonio Conte took Chelsea to court claiming unfair dismissal. Unlike the compensation proceedings which concluded in July, these proceedings were largely symbolic in nature - and designed to embarrass the club.

The dismissal of Antonio Conte in July 2018 has now become the most expensive sacking in English Football, with the club forking out an unprecedented £26.6 million in compensation to Conte and his staff.

“Exceptional items in the current year of £26.6m relate to changes in respect of the men’s team management and coaching staff, together with associated legal costs,” Chelsea stated

This defeat marks the conclusion of the court battle between Chelsea and Conte, with no more legal proceedings expected between the two parties.

Conte won the Premier League title with Chelsea in 2017 but was dismissed a year later for finishing fifth and failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
