Antonio Conte might be leaving Chelsea in the summer but, if he does, he’ll be leaving on a high.
The Blues may have finished 5th and failed to qualify for the Champions League but they are the FA Cup winners.
Eden Hazard’s 22nd-minute penalty was the only goal of the game as Jose Mourinho’s side failed to break down a solid Chelsea defence.
While Hazard was the match-winner, the Man of the Match was defender Antonio Rudiger.
He was a rock at the back, with United failing to create any clear-cut chances during the entire 90 minutes.
And BT Sport got the two heroes together for a post-match interview on the pitch after the final whistle.
What happened next was pretty hilarious.
Rudiger continually insisted that Hazard should stay at Chelsea next season, while the Belgian refused to discuss what his next move is.
Then, at the end of the interview, Hazard revealed that he will be staying at Stamford Bridge – but only on one condition.
“I need Rudiger to play like this every game, then I’ll stay!” Hazard joked.
Brilliant. CHELSEA FANS LOVED IT
As you’d imagine, Chelsea fans absolutely loved it.
With no Champions League football next season, you couldn’t blame Hazard if he jumped ship in the summer – especially if the likes of Real Madrid come calling.
A move to the Bernabeu could help Hazard move to the next level as he looks to win the Ballon d’Or.
However, he believes he’s not selfish enough to win that individual accolade.
“I think, in football now, if you want to win something like the Ballon d’Or or [to be the] top-scorer, you need to be selfish. But I’m not like this, not at all. I’m just who I am.”
