Chelsea have been ordered to pay former manager Antonio Conte £9million in compensation, the UK Mirror reports.
Conte, who won the Premier League and FA Cup during his two years in west London, has been embroiled in a bitter divorce from the club.
The Italian was sacked last summer and engaged in a legal fight with the Blues, citing unfair dismissal.
The former Juventus boss, who has held off taking another job during the past 12 months, wanted the final year of his contract paid in full.
Now, a three-person Premier League managers’ Arbitration Tribunal, has ruled in favour of Conte.
However, if Chelsea refuse to accept the Tribunal’s ruling, then the judgment can be challenged in the High Court.
