Antonio Conte's Chelsea wins the FA Cup

"I have also shown in England to be a serial winner despite all the difficulties that a league like this presents".

 

"Winning in England is never easy, in two years we won the Premier League and the FA Cup with so many tough rivals, it's not easy.

We won the game because we had the humility and the desire to work hard.

We won thanks to our effort, I'm happy, the players have shown me desire, sacrifice and determination.

I have also shown in England to be a serial winner despite all the difficulties that a league like this presents".

 

These are the words of Antonio Conte after winning the 2018 FA Cup final, the oldest football competition in the world.

His Chelsea Football Club beat Manchester United 1-0 in the final played at Wembley, thanks to a penalty won and converted by Eden Hazard in the 22nd minute of the first half.

The coach emphasised the dedication, determination and sacrifices made on the field by his players, which allowed the Blues to achieve their second trophy in two years, following the Premier League victory in 2017.
