Having led Chelsea to the Premier League title at the first time of asking, Antonio Conte has certainly attained an almost legendary status at Stamford Bridge despite this being only his first season in England.
The fans have made it more than known to him the affection that they have come to hold for the Italian endlessly chanting his name in recent games. It was the same again yesterday as Chelsea were presented with the Premier League trophy after their match against Sunderland.
Some Chelsea fans even went overboard yesterday as a banner read ‘Antonio Conte for Prime Minister’. While that is unlikely to happen, any manager who can manage the likes of Diego Costa so efficiently would almost run a country with most ease.
