Antonio Conte hailed a “great” season for his Premier League title winners and then told his Chelsea players to make it “fantastic” by adding the FA Cup.
“We were not lucky, we did a great job,” said Conte. “It is a great season, but to be a fantastic season we have to win the FA Cup.
“This is for my players. I have to say thanks for their commitment, their attitude and passion, and their will to do something great this season.
“Now, after this win, I think that we must be happy for all the season. This win is for the players. They deserved this for their great commitment through all the season. We won this title together. We fought a lot to win this title. My players were fantastic in a club who supported us.
“Every game I feel like I have played with my players. I show my passion and my will, my desire to stay with my players in every moment of the game. This is me, I am this.
“In the present, in the past, I stay with my players in positive and negative situations. We won this title together.”
