Italy national team are looking for a new coach after Giampiero Ventura left following his disastrous campaign, with the Azzurri failing to qualify for Russia 2018 World Cup after losing the playoffs against Sweden.
Today new Italy commissioner Roberto Fabbricini revealed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte – who already was in charge at the national team between 2014 and 2016- is one of the candidates for the prestigious job:
“The names are the ones you’ve already heard,” he told reporters.
“Mancini was in Rome but we didn’t speak with him.
“Conte seems eager to rejoin the Azzurri, Ancelotti opens and closes the door while Ranieri remains in the mix.
“There isn’t a favourite, but we have to look at the positives and negatives.
“Whoever has made Italian football proud will be taken into consideration.”
