Chelsea's Antonio Conte becomes ninth manager to lift Premier League trophy

Antonio Conte became the fourth manager to hoist the Premier League title at the first attempt on Friday night after his troops dispatched of West Brom at the Hawthorns, sparking scenes of jubilation as the capital club bagged their fifth top-flight trophy in 13 seasons.

In turn Conte cemented his name as the ninth manager to win the Premier League in the 25 years since its inauguration, and in the process become the fourth Italian to triumph on these shores, following the successes of Carlo Ancelotti, Roberto Mancini and Claudio Ranieri.

Antonio Conte

Remarkably this is the fourth season in succession in club management in which Conte has won the league, having previously lifted a hat-trick of titles with Italian giants Juventus between 2012 and 2014.

Conte has taken to English football like a duck to water, wrapping up the title with two games to spare, but Conte being Conte he's now instantly set his sights on doubling up, with an FA Cup final against Arsenal on the horizon.

Conte has been a mesmerising presence on the touchline, which has made for compulsive viewing. The expressive and emotional Italian lives and breathes every single second of the action, soaking it up, before unleashing passion-fuelled animations and celebrations that have transformed him into an instant icon amongst the Blues faithful.

On a slightly negative note it’s worth remembering that Carlo Ancelotti memorably won the double in his first season at Stamford bridge, only to be savagely sacked the following season.

But, the constant chopping-and-changing of managers doesn’t appear to have harmed Chelsea, with the club holding the record for most trophy managers since 1945 (11).
