“The Chelsea fans have given me so much support since I arrived here one year ago and it is important we continue to succeed together,” Conte told Chelsea’s official website.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “Antonio achieved incredible success last season, adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title.
“This new contract reflects our belief that he can continue to deliver results both domestically and as we return to European competition in the Champions League.”
