Chelsea manager couldn’t help but feel sorry for Middlesbrough players and their supporters as their defeat to Chelsea ensured they will be in the Championship next season.
Conte went to the away end and clapped for the away supporters after the game, and it only shows his class as a manager.
Conte revealed after the game why he had to clap for boro fans. He said: “In this case it is important to celebrate your win, it means we are very very close to win the title, to have a great achievement. For me the first season is great, but at the same time it is great to see a team that got relegated and see fans clap. You have to have a great respect and clap this situation, I think it would only happen in England. In Italy it would be difficult to see and it was a beautiful spot. I felt in my heart to clap them.”
