WATCH: Conte congratulates Chelsea U18 on very important FA Youth Cup ‘great tradition’

Following Chelsea’s FA Youth Cup triumph on Wednesday night — an historic fourth in a row and six in eight seasons — one of the first to congratulate the young Blues was none other than Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte, who had been watching the final alongside owner Roman Abramovich, as well as club legends John Terry and Frank Lampard.

Conte, with an entourage consisting of former FA Youth Cup winners Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Nathaniel Chalobah, Tammy Abraham, Todd Kane (and many, many others) went down to the dressing room to deliver a short but sweet victory speech.

The audio isn’t exactly great, but Conte called the win “very important” and a “great tradition” for Chelsea.

“Congratulations. You played a very good game. I think you deserved the trophy. It is very important to win for us and is a great tradition for the club. I hope you continue this way. Well done, good job.”

It wasn’t all serious of course. It was a celebration, after all, with Trevoh Chalobah leading the way in classic Chalobah fashion.

With big brother Nathaniel on hand, a dance-off was always going to be the likely outcome.

I wouldn’t dare a pick a winner.

Then again, on Wednesday night, they were all winners.

UPDATE: There are a few extra scenes in the second half of this week’s Chelsea Unseen as well, including an appearance from John Terry and Tamm Abraham.
