Chelsea fans hail Conte for giving speech to successful youth team

Chelsea supporters seem to have fallen more in love with their manager Antonio Conte after he visited the club’s Under-18s to congratulate them on winning the FA Youth Cup.

The young guns sealed their fourth consecutive title after sealing a 6-2 aggregate win over Manchester City in midweek.

On the night, Conte watched from the executive boxes at Stamford Bridge as the players of the future claimed a 5-1 triumph, with Trevoh Chalobah, Ike Ugbo, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Dujon Sterling and Cole DaSilva getting on the scoresheet.

After the final whistle, celebrations ensued and Conte took part before heading to the dressing room and delivering a speech to the teenage team.

It was a nice touch from the Italian coach, who is edging closer to claiming his first-ever Premier League title as his senior team have a four-point lead with five games left to play.

Unfortunately for the youth players, they face a huge challenge trying to break into the first-team squad.

John Terry is the only big success story in terms of Chelsea’s youth development, but a visit from Conte will only spur on the Blues’ developing talent.
