Former head coach of Chelsea, Antonio Conte is ready to sue the club over the rest of his salary.
Sky Sports reports that Conte feels he should be paid what he is contractually owed out of respect, after he was sacked earlier this year.
It was gathered that the gaffer’s legal team has been working on two separate cases: the first for employment tribunal and the second for Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The West London side has been trying very hard to have a physical discussion with the Italian but he has turned down all invites, insisting on legal solution to the impasse.
The former Chelsea boss allegedly wants £8.7m worth of damages on top of his remaining year’s salary of £11.3m, taking his claim to £20m.
However, the Blues are adamant to make the payment because of his ill-behaviour while at the club which includes the wrong treatment of Diego Costa, late arrival to press conferences, parking in the wrong space at Cobham training ground and refusal to show up for sponsorship events.
