Del Pierro wants Conte to manage Italy if he leaves Chelsea

  Del Pierro wants Conte to manage Italy if he leaves Chelsea Speaking to FourFourTwo, Italian legend Alessandro Del Pierro wants former Italy manager and current Chelsea head coach, Antonio Conte, to be the Italy manager once more after his spell at Chelsea ends. Conte left Italy in the summer of 2016 after Euro 2016 to join Chelsea and he won the Premier League in his first season in charge of The Blues. After somewhat of a struggle this season for Chelsea, Conte has come under pressure despite winning the league last campaign, the speculation around his future has come into scrutiny as well due to Italy under-performing in the World Cup qualifiers and many have tipped Conte to replace Gian Piero Ventura. Del Pierro had this to say on Conte’s future “He did great with Juve of course and a great job with the national team, we would love to have him back in Italy, of course, because he is a great coach. He would improve any team and this is what he did with Chelsea last season and what he did with Juve as well. We had some problems and he fixed it, then won the title. He has some amazing qualities and that’s why he’s coaching the best teams in the world. I hope he will have a great period with Chelsea and then maybe one day come back.

Giampiero Ventura has promised to resign from his role as Italy manager after their failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Asked by a reporter from Italian television programme "Le Iene" if he will resign his post after the Azzurri drew lost 1-0 on aggregate to Sweden, Ventura replied: "Yes".

Reports from Sky Italia claim that Ventura will, in fact, have his contract mutually terminated by the Italian Football Federation.

That would leave Ventura in line for a pay-off, worth around €700,000.

Italy have been ever-present at the marquee international tournament, but will miss their first World Cup since 1958 after a historic evening at San Siro.
