The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are loving Antonio Conte’s reign in charge of Chelsea so far…
Brought in as the permanent replacement for Jose Mourinho over the summer, the Italian was charged with turning around the fortunes of a team that had seriously struggled over the course of the previous season.
It was a mighty task, and nobody expected the Blues to do much better than a top four finish, but Conte blew all of their expectations out of the water.
Delivering a stunning managerial display, Conte has since led the Blues to the top of the Premier League, whilst an impending FA Cup final could see even more success head towards SW6.
Indeed, it has been a season of winning, success and joy for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, and earlier today Antonio Conte received a major personal award for his feat.
Indeed, Conte has been named as the Barclays Premier League Manager of the Year, an award that he certainly deserves. There is no doubting just how big of an announcement this really is. Conte came to England with a big reputation, but he has done far better than anyone could have really imagined. Many managers could have been up for this award, most notably Mauricio Pochettino, but Conte has risen to the top.
Unsurprisingly, this has generated quite the reaction on Reddit, with fans from across the website heaping praise upon the Italian and recognising the fantastic job that he has done.
