Antonio Conte has signed a new two-year contract with Chelsea.
The former Juventus and Italy manager was in charge when the team lifted the Premier League title last season.
The Italian boss who arrived at Stamford bridge in the summer of 2016 said: “I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea.”
In an interview with the club’s official website, he said:We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top.
“The Chelsea fans have given me so much support since I arrived here one year ago and it is important we continue to succeed together.”
Club director Marina Granovskaia added: “Antonio achieved incredible success last season, adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title.
“This new contract reflects our belief that he can continue to deliver results both domestically and as we return to European competition in the Champions League.”
