The Italian manager lifts the trophy with the Blues in his first season in charge and, surpasses his fellow rivals Utd and City in the dugouts.


Stan Collymore thinks that Conte upstaged Pep Guardiola and Mourinho in his first spell at EPL.

He ensures the in his first spell he ends up winning the silverware with the Blues side after defeating the West Brom side on Friday.

This season he can win the FA cup as well with the Blues as they will face Arsenal in the FA cup final.

This season the Spanish manager will guarantee end his first spell with them without a trophy, on the other hand, Mourinho has a chance to claim the Europa cup with the Manchester United side against Ajax.

Collymore in an interview said: “Chelsea's coronation as Premier League champions on Friday confirmed what most of us have known for a while now,”

“That Antonio Conte has been the cream of the crop of the ­super-­managers who arrived in the top flight or were ­reintroduced to it last summer.

“Conte has won the title with a fairly modest spend, compared to Jose Mourinho at Manchester United and Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

“And the fact he has been able to motivate players, who showed last season what moody devils they can be, is further proof of just what a great manager he is.”

“After six Premier League games, the ­rumour mill suggested he might be sacked, but he made a decisive change to a back three.

“He helped David Luiz prove me wrong in that back three, because I did not rate him as a defender in a two, but have to take my cap off to the way he has played this season.

“And, as for Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso, would Mourinho, Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp have turned them into wing-backs with the kind of ­success they have had?

“Doubtful, I’d say.”
