Conte eager to return to Italy - FIGC commissioner

Antonio Conte is reportedly "eager to return" as Italy manager, according to the new head of the Italy Football Federation, Roberto Fabbricini (via The Daily Mail).

"But I'm not interested in this and my only desire is to continue to work, to be focused on my team to try to do the best with this team".

And speculation over 48-year-old Conte's future has grown after Chelsea were beaten 3-0 by Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

The national team are still to replace Gian Piero Ventura, who stepped down as head coach after the World Cup shortcoming, with Conte, former Bayern Munich tactician Carlo Ancelotti, Zenit boss Roberto Mancini and Nantes manager Claudio Ranieri all tipped as potential candidates.

"For the moment Gigi can consider himself coach of the Under-21's and the interim boss of the senior side too", said Costacurta, a former Italy global who won five Champions League titles and played 663 times for AC Milan. My intention, my will, my desire is to respect this contract. [Antonio] Conte seems eager to return for another experience with the Azzurri, [Carlo] Ancelotti, from what I read on the papers, is opening and closing the door [to the national team], [Claudio] Ranieri also needs considering.




"I still have 18 months left on my contract at Chelsea".

Ventura was sacked after Italy failed to reach the World Cup finals for the first time since 1958 and FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio resigned.

"I trust in my work and this is the only thing I trust".

'We have to start talks soon, ' said Costacurta of their search for an Italy boss. "We played together with the national team in 1994".
