Pedro: Antonio Conte gave us ‘the belief that we could win the league’

Chelsea’s remarkable turnaround under  Conte is down to one simple factor according to Pedro.

Last season Chelsea failed miserably to defend their Premier League crown and finished the campaign in a lowly position.

Antonio Conte was named as Mourinho’s long-term successor ahead of the 2016-17 season and took the helm following Italy’s Euro 2016 campaign.

The Italian has transformed their fortunes and Chelsea is currently sit six points clear at the top of the table after 11 successive league wins.

The change of formation, the current  form of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have  been credited as the reason for their revival, but Pedro revealed it to be something much simpler.

“In my career, I have worked with  good managers, like Pep Guardiola and Vicente del Bosque,” he said.

“But one thing that really surprised me about Antonio  Conte is how he managed to turn around the team so quickly.

“He had trust in all of the players and then we started winning matches. Quite easily, he just turned things around. He put the trust in us, the belief  that we could win games, that we could win EPL.

“It’s just like everything turned really quickly. We started to go really well, our trust started growing and everything started going well. We’ve got a lot of trust and that really helps.

“One of the key things is the trust we have with everybody. We Trust ourselves and it means we work really well together as a team.

“When we get a chance we take it and that makes the team feel more relaxed and play with more confidence.”
