Italy hires ex-Juventus coach Antonio Conte as national team manager
The Italy men's national team has hired former Juventus coach Antonio Conte as its manager, beIN Sports' Tancredi Palmeri reports.
The Italian-born manager resigned from Juventus earlier this year after winning Serie A titles each season since he was hired in 2011. He had been rumored to be the favorite for the job, but was reportedly negotiating for more decision-making power.
Conte replaces Cesare Prandelli, who resigned this summer following Italy's elimination from the FIFA World Cup in the group stage.
