Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been named Barclays Premier League Manager of the Month for December, after guiding the Blues to a perfect December.
Conte guided Chelsea to a run of 6 victories in December, starting with a 3-1 win against Manchester City, and ended the month with a 4-2 win over Stoke.
The Italian was happy to claim the award yet again.
“I’m very proud,” he tells the official Chelsea website. “It’s a great honour for me but I want to say thanks to all of my players, my staff and the club because we won the award together. Now it’s important to continue to work very well together.
“I enjoyed my first Christmas period a lot. This type of atmosphere only happens in England and it was fantastic. I hope to experience it again many times in the future.
“When you win you usually see a lot of positive things and every game was different. We won six matches and to do that, especially in December, is very difficult.”
