Antonio Conte has been appointed to take over as Chelsea manager in the summer of 2016. Here are seven things to know about the Italian (via Opta).
- Conte will be Chelsea's fifth Italian manager after Gianluca Vialli, Claudio Ranieri, Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Di Matteo. No other team in the Premier League has had more than one.
- He is also Roman Abramovich's 10th different manager at Chelsea (Mourinho & Hiddink have both had two stints).
- Since 1971-72, Conte is the Juventus manager with the highest win ratio in Serie A (72.8 percent). He won 83 out 114 league games as Juventus manager, losing only seven.
- Conte's Juventus scored in 43 consecutive games (February 2013-March 2014) -- a Serie A all-time record.
- Juventus also recorded an unbeaten run of 49 games from May 2011 to October 2012 (with Conte involved in 48 of them) -- only AC Milan can boast a longer streak (58 games) in Serie A history.
- Conte won the Scudetto with Juventus in 2013-14 picking up 102 points and winning 33 games: both all-time records in a Serie A campaign. He also won the Serie A Coach of the Year award three straight times from 2012-14 (and is the only three-time winner of the award, which was also won twice by two other managers who have also managed Chelsea - Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancellotti).
- As a player Conte won Serie A (5 times), Coppa Italia (1), the Italian Supercup (4), UEFA Cup (1), Champions League (1), European Supercup (1), Intercontinental Cup (1) and UEFA Intertoto Cup (1).
