At just 47, Antonio Conte has no doubt achieved more than many older than his age. The Italian has managed in 2 countries in his illustrious career, and has been very successful in both— well, one may argue that he’s yet to see out this a season in England, but then, he is the manager of the leading team in the division at the moment, and barring a capitulation of greater magnitude than last season, Chelsea look like they’ll lift the title come May 2017.
Conte’s impact at Chelsea has been so great that he has been rewarded for it by the league’s management on more than one occasion. He led Chelsea on that remarkable run to a 13 game winning streak, a run that began in October, and ended early this January to Tottenham. Conte won the manager of the month award for October, November and December 2016. And he is the first man (manager) in the history of the EPL to achieve that record. What this means is that nobody, not even the great Mou and Ferguson has ever won the manager of the month award more than twice in a row. This is the feat Conte has achieved in his short stay in the EPL. Of course, one cannot say he’s the best ever in the league simply because of that record, especially considering he’s yet to win a trophy, but you will agree that he has set a record, and with the things we have seen from him, he’s not too far away from being among the best ever in England, and we at Chelsea feel happy and lucky to have secured his services, and we hope the success story continues.
Congratulations to Conte, and the entire Chelsea team for all they’ve done for the fans this season.
