REVEALED: Conte sacking sees Abramovich reach £90M in Chelsea manager pay-outs

The dismissal of Antonio Conte on Thursday means Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has shelled out almost £90m to sacked managers during his reign.

The Sun says Conte is set to pocket a monster £9million to leave Stamford Bridge for good.

Remarkably, it is the NINTH time in the Roman Abramovich era a boss has been handed a monster sum to leave peacefully.

In fact, the amount Chelsea have paid out to axed bosses now stands at an incredible £89.3m, including Conte.

Jose Mourinho's first Chelsea sacking in 2007 cost the club an outrageous £18m - with his 2015 firing an additional £9.5m.

Luiz Filipe Scolari (£12.6m), Andre Villas-Boas (£12m) and Roberto Di Matteo (£10.7m) have all cost the club more than £10m to part ways.

Meanwhile, Avram Grant, Claudio Ranieri and Carlo Ancelotti have all cost well over £5m apiece in pay-outs.

Now Chelsea look set for even more financial frustration as they will almost certainly need to pay off EIGHT of Conte's backroom staff.

Sacked Chelsea boss pay-outs under Abramovich:

Antonio Conte (Jul 18) - £9million

Jose Mourinho (Nov 15) - £9.5m

Roberto Di Matteo (Nov 12) - £10.7m

Andre Villas-Boas (Mar 12) - £12m

Carlo Ancelotti (May 11) - £6m

Luiz Felipe Scolari (Feb 09) - £12.6m

Avram Grant (May 08) - £5.5m

Jose Mourinho (Sep 07) - £18m

Claudio Ranieri (Jun 04) - £6m

TOTAL = £89.3m
