Chelsea sack manager Carlo Ancelotti after ending season without a trophy

Chelsea have sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti after he ended his second season at the club without a trophy.

Speculation had been mounting that Ancelotti would be sacked following Chelsea's first season without a trophy in three years. The 51-year-old had one more year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.

But Ancelotti was dismissed following the 1-0 loss to Everton, as the west Londoners finished second in the Premier League.

A club statement read: "This season's performances have fallen short of expectations and the club feels the time is right to make this change ahead of next season's preparations."
