It is impossible not to love Antonio Conte.
The Chelsea boss took the reins at a side that was battered and broken – from Premier League champions to relegation battlers – and he has turned them into a family.
Chelsea are now champions once more, and if we win our final game of the season, we will set a new record for number of wins in a single Premier League season. Our points tally of 93 will also be the second most in the Premier League era, only bettered by Jose Mourinho’s 2004/05 winning machine.
Conte is not just a manager, he is a king, and after the game last night – he had his coronation.
During his post match press conference, Conte was asked what seemed to be a provocative question about Diego Costa’s deviant behaviour. He turned it on it’s head, and made the entire press room laugh. What a manager, what a man.
What was Diego Costa up to last night?🎂
