Despite previous rumors stating that he is not keen in accepting the role, former Juventus’ head coach, Antonio Conte has now been appointed as new Italy national team tactician.
That news has been confirmed by Italian Football Federation (FIGC) that is offering Conte a two years deal which will reportedly see the tactician receiving 2 million Euros per year.
Having a successful spell at Juventus by guiding them to three consecutive league titles, many believes that Conte is the right candidate in getting Azzurri back into the top of footballing giant in Europe.
There will be definitely pressure hovering around Conte as he is being expected to lift Italy up again after such disappointing World Cup 2014 campaign which saw them only finishing third in group stage.
Conte himself surprisingly quit Juve this summer after ending his contract on mutual agreement, spreading wide speculation about his future as that decision was not expected by anyone.
