Chelsea’s Italian manager, Antonio Conte has reportedly agreed and signed a new deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit which will now run until 2020. The Italian’s initial contract, which he signed with Chelsea when he joined last April, was due to expire in 2019.
Conte joined Chelsea in the summer after his spell managing the Italian national team at Euro 2016 where he took one of the least star-studded Italian sides into the quarter-finals of the competition. In a short space of time, Conte has turned the club around following a 10th place finish in the Premier League last season to the top of the league table this season. His shift from a back four to a more fluid back three in a 3-4-3 formation has won him numerous plaudits across England as the Blues now sit eight points clear at the top of the league table after 25 games and they are in the FA Cup quarter-finals where they play Manchester United..
The 47-year-old could possibly win the double in his first season at Chelsea provided his side gets past Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
