Antonio Conte: 7 things to know about Chelsea's new manager

Alison Bender runs through the most important issues that Antonio Conte faces as new Chelsea manager.

Antonio Conte has been appointed to take over as Chelsea manager in the summer of 2016. Here are seven things to know about the Italian (via Opta).

- Conte will be Chelsea's fifth Italian manager after Gianluca Vialli, Claudio Ranieri, Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Di Matteo. No other team in the Premier League has had more than one.

- He is also Roman Abramovich's 10th different manager at Chelsea (Mourinho & Hiddink have both had two stints).

- Since 1971-72, Conte is the Juventus manager with the highest win ratio in Serie A (72.8 percent). He won 83 out 114 league games as Juventus manager, losing only seven.

- Conte's Juventus scored in 43 consecutive games (February 2013-March 2014) -- a Serie A all-time record.

- Juventus also recorded an unbeaten run of 49 games from May 2011 to October 2012 (with Conte involved in 48 of them) -- only AC Milan can boast a longer streak (58 games) in Serie A history.

- Conte won the Scudetto with Juventus in 2013-14 picking up 102 points and winning 33 games: both all-time records in a Serie A campaign. He also won the Serie A Coach of the Year award three straight times from 2012-14 (and is the only three-time winner of the award, which was also won twice by two other managers who have also managed Chelsea - Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancellotti).

- As a player Conte won Serie A (5 times), Coppa Italia (1), the Italian Supercup (4), UEFA Cup (1), Champions League (1), European Supercup (1), Intercontinental Cup (1) and UEFA Intertoto Cup (1).
