Tottenham boss Conte bags prestigious FIGC award ahead of Milan’s Pioli

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has won the prestigious Panchina D’oro award from FIGC.

FIGC posted the results of the awards on social media, confirming that Conte has won the accolade after getting more votes from his colleagues than any other Italian boss. The award recognises the best coach of the year in Italy.

Conte has won the award because of his Scudetto win with Inter last season and it is the sixth time that he has won the accolade. Conte got a total of 20 votes, only one more than Milan boss Stefano Pioli. Atalanta’s Gian Piero Gasperini finished at the third place eight votes in total.

The award was delivered to Conte at the Tottenham headquarters and the Italian said: “I am happy because it is an award given by my colleagues. I would like to share this recognition with the staff and with the players with whom I shared the journey of last season at Inter.”

Conte’s Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League table, only three points behind Arsenal.
