Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been named LMA Manager of the Year and Barclays Premier League Manager of the Season.

The Italian led Chelsea to an incredible season, which the Blues won a record 30 league games en route to becoming champions.

Back in October, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insisted that Chelsea weren’t in his top five teams to win the league.

Karma became a reality when Conte was presented with the best manager of the season award at the League Managers Association dinner on Monday night by Sir Alex Ferguson and Gareth Southgate.

Back in October, Conte responded to Ferguson’s comment by saying: “I respect a lot what he said but I know that we are working very well.

“I think we are now in a good way to improve a lot and to become a team that can stay until the end to get something.”

Seven months later Conte’s Chelsea are champions and the boss is the best manager in the league.

Conte said about winning the award: “I think I’ve had a lot of incredible emotions in my first season here in England.

“I want to say thank you to all the people who voted for me. It’s great to receive this award. I hope to deserve this.

“It’s fantastic to read all the names that won this trophy and to stay with these managers is a great achievement for me. I hope to continue in the best way.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
