Antonio Conte Not Thinking of Italy Return Says Former Juventus Supremo

One couldn't ignore the team's lack of inventiveness, and said: "Italy fell apart without footballing mastermind Antonio Conte, that's just facts".

After leading the Azzurri to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 officials want Conte back at the helm and they are working on a deal to get Conte out of his Chelsea contract next summer, according to The Mirror.

"He did great with Juventus of course and a great job with the national team", Del Piero told Sport360.

'We would love to have him back in Italy, of course, because he is a great coach.

Premium Sport adds Tavecchio "doesn't intend to step down", with the FIGC "drawing strength" from the results of Italy's youth teams since his arrival in 2014, budgets being in order and the use of VAR in Serie A this season.


'We had some problems and he fixed it, then won the title.

Another wrote: "Ventura is the worst Italian coach I have ever seen in my life, an absolute disgrace to the national team".

The manager's future at Stamford Bridge has been shrouded in uncertainty after he won the Premier League last season, failing to commit long-term to the West London club.

The Azzurri needed to overturn a 1-0 aggregate scoreline against Sweden at the Giuseppe Meazza in order to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, but failed to do so with a 0-0 result - meaning it's the first time Italy have been absent from a finals since 1958. I hope he will have a great period with Chelsea and then maybe one day come back. With that came the sad end to Gianluigi Buffon's 20 years' career with Italy.
