Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, has referred to himself as a serial winner after guiding his side to FA Cup success.
The Blues boss lifted the coveted trophy last night,May 19, roughly twelve months after winning the Premier League title.
But Conte who endured a difficult season filled with speculation over his future warned: “In a difficult season like this I showed I’m a serial winner. This is the truth. To win in this way, this season, gives me more satisfaction than my win from the past.”
Conte, who earns about £9m per year with Chelsea, has challenged club owner Roman Abramovich to sack him after two seasons of winning trophies.
He added: “I have a contract and I’m committed for this club.
“Don’t forget the speculation started after our first defeat against Burnley.
“My position was always the same — I’m committed to this club, despite a lot of speculation.
“One day I had the chance to go to the national team, one day this team, one day another important team . . .
“In every press conference I said that I’m committed to this club.
“After two years, the club knows me very well.
“My past speaks very clearly as a player and as a manager. You can say what you want, but I’m a serial winner."

The Belgium international's superb control from a counter attack beat Phil Jones as he raced clear on a one-on-one situation with De Gea.
Jones fouled Hazard in the box as a penalty was awarded to Chelsea and Hazard sends De Gea the wrong way to score the only goal of the match.
