Antonio Conte revealed that phasing out John Terry in his first winning season was a straightforward process due to the professionalism of the Chelsea legend.

Michy Batshuayi’s late West Brom goal confirmed the Blues as champions exactly three years ago Tuesday, with Terry only showing up in the league nine times.

“It has been a great privilege to be the coach of a Chelsea legend like John Terry,” said Conte Sky Sports News in a rare interview.

“We are talking about a prominent man, a really good man and then a top player. He helped me a lot during my first season on and off the field. “

“It was very important on the training ground, during the sessions to maintain high levels of concentration. “

Terry was sent off in front of Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge when he was substituted in the 26th minute of the match against Sunderland.

“He decided he wanted it because 26 was his team number and for me it was a pleasure to give him this opportunity.

“I can never thank him enough. It was very important to me and our team. “

Conte highlighted the 4-0 demolition of Manchester United as a key game in pushing the title in the days he celebrated with supporters close to the sidelines.

“I live my work intensely! He said when asked about the celebrations.

“Sometimes I show my passion and I want to share my happiness with the fans. I had an incredible relationship with Chelsea fans.

“This game was important to us because when you win 4-0 against a top team it is a boost because we understand very well that we can fight to win the league.

“This match gave us confidence and self-confidence and we created a fantastic relationship with our fans. “
