Despite not seeing certain players join Chelsea last summer, players he had asked for, and despite other problems that seem to exist between him and certain people at the Blues, Antonio Conte keeps repeating how focused he is on his work there.
Alessandro del Piero wishes him the best in London, but talking to Sport360, he didn’t hide his hope/wish to see his former teammate return to Italy’s national team, preferably for the World Cup finals next summer.
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
the Italian legend said, confident that Conte would do an even better job at Italy’s national team, than what he did last year, leading the team to the quarterfinals of Euro 2016, in France.
We had some problems at Juventus 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
del Piero also said. As for Italy’s chances of beating Sweden and qualifying for the World Cup finals, the former Juve star seemed hopeful, counting on the team’s strikers to play as well as they play with their clubs.
[Ciro] Immobile seems to be scoring every week. He’s amazing for that, so Ventura has real options. He has [Lorenzo] Insigne and [Antonio] Candreva on the right side so I don’t think we have a problem with the options in attack. There is no forward who is not playing well but the problem is maybe mentality
del Piero said.
