98% of all text messages get read… and the response rates via text message are in a completely different league to that of any other marketing channel – that’s why if you have got something important to say, say it by text!!

And that’s exactly what Antonio Conte the Chelsea manager has done.

His superstar striker is apparently surplus to requirements at the English Premier League Champions, and he is told his striker that he does not need him next year by text…

“Antonio Conte has told me by text message that I do not follow at Chelsea and that’s it.”
