Although past year Italian papers might have shown much more enthusiasm for Ranieri's win, they have been quick to praise Conte for doing the having an instant impact in the Premier League and establishing an Italian dominance in England.
Conte has suggested that he will sign a number of players in the summer to replace the departed Jon Obi Mikel, Branislav Ivanovic and Oscar.
"We are working (for) only nine months together". This team would, statistically, be one of the best ever to feature in the competition. When you arrive after a bad season when the team were 10th, there is not only one problem.
Claudio Ranieri said he is proud to pass the Premier League title onto compatriot Antonio Conte after the Italian guided Chelsea to glory in his first season in England.
Chelsea are unbeaten in six Premier League meetings against Watford since losing the first clash in September 1999 (W4 D2).
Chelsea now prepare for their FA Cup final against Arsenal in a bid to complete the double.

"Simone Zaza gave me a header - I don't think it was on objective". Of course we think about this.
"It was the key moment for us because every single player found in the system their best". When you get criticised, obviously it's not nice just after a season when you had won the league.
Watford, 15th, are not yet mathematically safe from relegation, although it will take a minor miracle for them to be caught by third-bottom Hull City.
Spurs lost at West Ham 1-0 last week to give Chelsea three opportunities to clinch the league. Courtois added: "Obviously the impression in the beginning with Antonio was that we were all going to do a lot of work, a lot of video meetings, and a lot of the things that a football player doesn't like too much". I was suffering during the game. Other leagues don't have these extra games, extra trophies and extra hard games. I'm not a stupid guy.
Conte is joined on the shortlist by Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, whose side have secured second place in the Premier League table and said farewell to White Hart Lane on Sunday ahead of their temporary relocation to Wembley Stadium while the ground is redeveloped. "But we will go there and fight".
