With Italy who failed to qualify for the World Cup and coach Giampiero Ventura sacked, speculations and rumours are rising on who will be the next Italy’s manager.
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte remains one of the principal candidates, and Conte himself said, during his press conference before tomorrow’s Premier League game vs West Bromwich: “I think must be honest, I think now it’s very difficult because in this moment it’s not simple. – Conte said when asked if he would quit the Blues for Italy – “There are a lot of rumours, a lot of news, but I think for the federation it’s right to take the right time to find the best solution for the football in Italy. I think that this is not a great moment for us, for my country, because to miss the World Cup after 56 years it means that it’s a disaster for us. You know very well how important football is in Italy. But it has happened and now for sure the federation has to find the right solution to improve this situation.”
