Chelsea FC won the title as the new Premier League champions on Friday.
Manager, Antonio Conte, expressed joy at leading the Blues to the title in his first season as coach of the football club.
Conte said: ‘I celebrated with my players which is normal after a great achievement like this.
‘They wet me after the celebrations with the fans, they poured champagne and beer over me so I had to change my clothes, my suit is a disaster now. I’m wearing the tracksuit but I’m living a very important moment. I’m enjoying it a lot.
‘ It’s a dream which is coming true’.
