‘Serial winner’ Conte savours cup triumph

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte again insisted he plans to see out the final year of his contract following the FA Cup final win over Manchester United but acknowledged that the decision is out of his hands.

Conte masterminded a 1-0 success against former Blues manager Jose Mourinho’s side, adding to the Premier League title he won in his first season.

“After two years the club knows me very well,” Conte said.

“And if they want to continue to work, they know me. I can’t change. My way is always the same; hard work and to build a strong mentality with my players. I can’t change. I am this and I think my past speaks very clear as a player and a manager.

“I am a serial winner and I showed this after a difficult moment after a 10th place. I showed this today when we found a way to lift this trophy.

“In two seasons I bought two trophies and I am very happy. I will always love the colour, this club and these fans, even if my future must be in a different way.”
