Chelsea overcame a difficult campaign to end the season as Champions of England, and Chelsea star Eden Hazard has heaped praises on Antonio Conte’s training program that helped keep the players fit all through the year.
Hazard revealed a huge amount of the club’s success in 2016/17 is down to Conte’s work on increasing the players’ efforts in the gym.
“He’s a great manager,” the Belgian said.
“When we came back in the pre-season, it was intense, and if we won this season, it’s because of that. We practised a lot of tactics, also (worked on) fitness and running.
“For me, it was the first time in England where we worked a lot in the gym. And yeah we want to look forward (to next season) with him.”
