Antonio Conte has released a statement thanking Chelsea's staff for their "hard work and support" during his time at the club.
Conte was sacked as Chelsea head coach on Friday, with former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri named as his successor a day later following a protracted on-off move to the Premier League.
Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title during his first year in charge but they were unable to defend their crown last season, finishing fifth in the table before beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final.
"I would like to thank all of my friends at Chelsea Football Club for their hard work and support over the past two seasons which enabled us to win the Premier League and FA Cup together," Conte said in a statement issued through the League Managers Association (LMA).
"To the players, whose talent and commitment was so important to our successes, I thank them for everything. It has been a pleasure working with them every day.
"I hope Chelsea will continue to be successful and I wish everyone well for next season.
"I have made many memories during my time with Chelsea, which I will take with me into my next challenge."
