English Premiership

Conte grabs third straight Manager award

2017-01-13 15:02

London - Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has become the first manager in English Premier League history to claim the Manager of the Month award for a third consecutive time.

The former Italy boss was on Friday named MOTM for December after ensuring his side remained at the summit of the league table.

The London outfit boast a perfect record for the month, recording six straight victories.

"I'm very proud," Conte told Chelsea's official website. "It's a great honour for me but I want to say thanks to all of my players, my staff and the club because we won the award together.

"Now it's important to continue to work very well together.

"I enjoyed my first Christmas period a lot. This type of atmosphere only happens in England and it was fantastic. I hope to experience it again many times in the future.

"When you win you usually see a lot of positive things and every game was different. We won six matches and to do that, especially in December, is very difficult.

"If I had to pick out one game I would choose West Brom, because it was very tough and we scored with 15 minutes remaining.

"My players showed me great character and a strong will to win right until the end that day, which I always like to see."

Chelsea next face league champions Leicester City at the King Power Stadium looking to extend their lead at the summit of the Premiership table.

Kick off is at 19:30.
