INTER MILAN APPOINTS CONTE AS NEW MANAGER



Inter Milan has announced the appointment of former Chelsea and Italy boss Antonio Conte as the new coach of the Italian side.

The 49-year-old has signed a three-year contract worth nine million euros ($10 million) plus bonuses with the Chinese-owned club.

Conte was dismissed by Chelsea after a combustible end to the 2017 – 2018 season when he appeared to lose the players’ trust despite winning the Premier League title the season before.

He replaces Luciano Spalletti who guided Inter into a Champions League berth for a second consecutive year on the final day of the Serie A season last Sunday.

With the 18-time Serie A champions searching for a first trophy since the Coppa Italia in 2011, Conte boasts a powerful pedigree.

He won the first three of Juventus’ eight consecutive Serie A titles and the Premier League and FA Cup as Chelsea boss.

But during his stay at Chelsea, stories leaked of a difficult relationship with the club’s hierarchy.

“A new chapter is opening in my life,” Conte said. “I can’t wait. I have chosen Inter because of the club it is, for its plans and ambition”. He concluded.
