Antonio Conte extends Chelsea stay by signing new two-year contract by Noblex: 5:19 am On Jul 19, 2017
Antonio Conte has signed a new two-year contract at Chelsea, the Premier League champions have confirmed.
Former Juventus and Italy head coach Conte led Chelsea to glory in his first season in England's top flight, with the Blues finishing seven points clear of Tottenham at the summit.
The new contract is an improvement upon the terms of the three-year deal the 47-year-old agreed when he joined Chelsea, meaning he is still tied to the Stamford Bridge club until the end of 2018-19.
Conte told Chelsea's official website: "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.
Conte has bolstered his squad with the arrival Germany defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, although his decision to freeze out striker Diego Costa and the failure to secure an attacking replacement means the close season has not run entirely smoothly to date.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia, though, believes the Italian remains the ideal man to lead the Blues to further success as they prepare for a return to the Champions League.
"Antonio achieved incredible success last season, adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title," she said.
