(Photo) Chelsea fans excited as what appears to be a grainy picture of Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge surfaces online

The inevitable has finally been announced as Chelsea released an official statement confirming Antonio Conte’s exit from the blues earlier today.

The Italian had a great start to life in England, leading Chelsea to league success in his first year in charge but ultimately fell out with the bigwigs at Chelsea over transfers so badly that even winning the FA cup couldn’t save his blues career.

Conte is expected to be replaced by former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri who is set to be the 9th manager at Stamford Bridge since Roman Abramovich took over in 2003.

Chelsea fans have been eagerly awaiting confirmation of the veteran boss’ arrival and excitement levels reached an all time high on Twitter recently after a grainy photo came out which seems to suggest that the 59-year-old has already arrived in London.

Could have used a better camera for this shot! Check out this picture which seems to show the incoming gaffer near Stamford Bridge:

(Image) Dortmund-esque 3rd kit from New Balance bound to divide opinion among Celtic fans

New Balance has built quite a reputation among Celtic fans after replacing Nike as kit suppliers back in 2016.

The American sportswear makers have however divided the opinions of the Hoops support on certain occasions and that trend looks set to continue.

Leaked images on the internet seem to point to a yellow and black third kit for next season which looks somewhat similar to Borussia Dortmund’s famous home strip.

The kit has had contrasting reviews online with some fans hailing New Balance for absolutely nailing it while others seemingly hating the look of the kit.

Sergio Ramos angered a plethora of Liverpool fans when his horror challenge on star man Mo Salah forced the Egyptian to limp off halfway through the Champions League final in Kiev back in May.

With a majority of the Reds fans feeling Salah’s early withdrawal played a huge part in their downfall in Ukraine, it was not surprising to see them having fun at the 32-year-old’s expense online following Spain’s shock elimination at the hands of hosts Russia.

As Reds flooded in with their responses on a photo mocking Ramos’ perplexed reaction after the match, supporters were doubly delighted to see former Red Lucas Leiva also join in on the fun by commenting with a laughing emoji on Instagram.

Once a Red always a Red! Check out a screenshot of Lucas’ comment below :

(Video) Celtic hero Henrik Larsson had only one answer to BBC journo’s ‘favorite stadium’ question

The 2018 World Cup in Russia has been full of twists and turns so far with many of the favorites including current champions Germany, Lionel Messi’s Argentina, former champs Spain and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal all out of the competition without even making it to the knockout stages of the competition.

That being said, some things that went down during Spain’s shock defeat to Russia didn’t surprise anyone, as a BBC journalist found out when she asked Henrik Larsson a pretty simple question.

Jacqui Oatley might have been bracing herself for a shock answer when she asked the former Swedish international about the best stadium he had ever played in.

But staying true to his allegiances to the Hoops, the legendary striker who scored 242 goals in 313 appearances replied “Celtic Park” with a beaming smile.

(Image) Leeds United fans are loving the new yellow training kit from Kappa, want it as away kit

Leeds supporters have looked pretty excited on Twitter after Marcelo Bielsa‘s appointment with the move regarded as one of the biggest deals to have gone down in the Championship in recent memory.

With several changes expected to take place at Elland road following the veteran boss’ arrival, some fans were seen suggesting a pretty decent change for the club as far as the away kit is concerned.

Leeds fans took to Twitter to voice their calls to revert back to the old ways with a yellow away kit after being impressed by the looks of Kappa’s new training gear for the club.

With the blue away kit for last year’s campaign getting mixed responses from fans, moving back to a yellow kit should be a popular move if the responses on Twitter are anything to go by.

(Video) What a guy – Luciano Becchio spotted doing the Leeds Salute during his holidays in Spain

There are few players who are loved by the Leeds support as much as their former talismanic striker Luciano Becchio.

The clinical Argentine is a cult figure at Elland Road having scored more than 84 goals for the Whites, with many of those strikes rescuing Leeds at crucial times.

And after this video was posted online his already soaring popularity with the Leeds fans is set to go even higher.

Casually strolling outside a beach in Spain during his vacation, the former hitman passionately bumped his chest to give a classic Leeds Salute to supporters who were chanting his name.

Club teammates often turn into foes when players put on a national shirt, even exploiting each other’s weaknesses for their nation’s glory.

Incidents like Rooney and Ronaldo’s infamous bust-up whilst they were still mates at United have often left fans heartbroken during international match ups.

But Spurs players have proved themselves to be from a different mould and seemed quite happy to see each other during England’s defeat to Belgium yesterday.

Spurs fans were delighted to see the love on display during the Group G fixture which featured several Spurs players on both sides.

(Image) Savagery from Celtic marketing team as official Twitter account takes a cheeky jibe at Rangers

Celtic FC’s marketing team has once again scored some major points with the fans after coming up with a hilarious dig at bitter rivals Rangers.

It all started when the official Celtic Twitter account noticed how Southampton used the famous Stuart Armstrong chant while unveiling their new signing, asking the Premier League outfit to make a donation to their foundation for using the song.

After the Saints duly obliged, Celtic’s social media team displayed some of their razor sharp wit by tweeting how they respect clubs that pay their “dues”.

The sly dig at the Gers’ liquidation troubles has obviously gone done well with the Hoops support with fans sharing images of the tweets on social media.

At the top of their trolling game – check out the dig below :
