Good news for Chelsea fans as manager Antonio Conte has finally signed a new contract putting an end to speculations that he will be leaving the club this summer.

Speaking after signing the deal Conte said:

“I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea. We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top.

The Chelsea fans have given me so much support since I arrived here one year ago and it is important we continue to succeed together.”

Conte has also made some changes to his back room staff as Paolo Vanoli joined in the capacity of an assistant to the first team head coach and Davide Mazzotta will work as assistant/player analysis.
