While it hasn’t yet been announced officially, reports claim Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been rewarded with a new contract, less than one year after completing his move from Italy to Chelsea.
Daily Express quotes Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, who claimed that the 47-year-old has been rewarded with a new long-term deal at the club.
He has reportedly reached an agreement for a new three-year contract, keeping him at the Bridge until June 2020.
It extends Conte’s stay by one year, with his original deal only running until 2019.
Conte has been a hit in his first season as Chelsea manager. The Blues are currently top of the league with eight points separating Chelsea and Manchester City who are second on the table.
Conte’s man-management has given the team a new lease of life, and following last season’s catastrophe, the man has restored calm to the dressing room, while also leading his players to playing beautiful football and restoring the confidence that was lost.
Surely, Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board see Conte as a long-term success in Stamford Bridge, and with his maturity and temperament far different from Mourinho, the club wouldn’t be in any form of controversy anymore.
