Thierry Henry has heaped praise on Antonio Conte for the way in which he has improved some of Chelsea’s key players since taking over at the club.

Conte was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor and officially took charge of the west London side in the summer of 2016.

The Italian was an instant hit at Stamford Bridge as he led them to the Premier League title in his first campaign in charge at he club.

Conte is now midway through his second season in charge at Chelsea, with the Blues currently third in the table as they also look to compete in the League Cup, Champions League and FA Cup this term.

Marcos Alonso, Gary Cahill and Victor Moses are among the players whom Conte has placed his faith in since his arrival at the club, and the trio have formed a key part of the Blues’ squad in recent months.

And former Arsenal star Henry believes that Conte deserves huge amounts of praise for getting the best out of those three stars in particular.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Henry said: “What he has done with Victor Moses, Marcos Alonso and Gary Cahill, playing on the left-hand side of the back three.

“He made those players better and that, for me, is something important he’s already done at the club.”

Chelsea are currently preparing for their FA Cup third-round clash against Norwich on Saturday.
