Antonio Conte odds cut on Italy role

Antonio Conte’s odds on returning to manage Italy have been slashed after it was confirmed he is of interest to the Italian Football Federation.

Former Juventus boss Conte had two-years in charge of the Azzurri before take over at Chelsea in 2016.

Conte had a brilliant first season in charge, leading The Blues to the Premier League title – but his future is far from certain at the club after an in-different campaign as well as public clashes with the club about off-field issues.

Italy – who sacked Gian Piero Ventura after his failure to get them to the World Cup finals – have now instructed their vice-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta to find their new boss, and he admits that Conte is his first choice.

“I haven’t chosen yet but I think Conte is the one who could do the best. I’ll definitely talk with him in a couple of months,” Costacurta said.

In reaction to this, Bookmakers have cut Conte’s odds to 5/1 to be next Italian boss – he is already odds-on to have left Chelsea, with Coral making him 1/2 to have left Stamford Bridge by the start of next season.

“The odds firmly suggest Antonio Conte won’t be at Chelsea next season, while we have seen a flurry of bets for the Italian to take charge of his national team where he looks to be Italy’s number one target,” said Coral’s John Hill.
