Conte comes back to Serie A after signing a 3 year deal with Napoli

Antonio Conte has been appointed as the head coach of Serie A team Napoli. The much-anticipated coaching change in Serie A has now been confirmed. The Italian manager, who previously coached Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, has signed a three-year contract with the club owned by Aurelio De Laurentiis. Following a lacklustre season, Napoli will embark on a new journey under Conte, who is making a comeback to the Italian Serie A after a three-year absence from Italy.

According to the official declaration, De Lurentiis, the owner of Napoli, expressed his pride in appointing Antonio Conte as the new coach. He further added that Conte is a highly skilled coach and a charismatic leader, and he believes that Conte’s appointment marks the start of a new era for Napoli after their successful run, which saw them win the Scudetto last year, remaining at the top of Italian football for many seasons.

In a statement, Conte expressed his admiration for his new team.

Napoli holds great significance on a global scale. I am delighted and filled with anticipation at the prospect of taking a seat on the Azzurri bench. I can assure you of one thing – I will exert my utmost efforts towards the development of the team and the club. My dedication, along with that of my team, will be unwavering.

Conte began his coaching journey at Arezzo, Siena, and Bari before joining Juventus in the summer of 2011. He successfully led the team to win the Scudetto, which they had not achieved since the Calciopoli scandal in 2006. In 2014, he resigned from his position and became the coach of the Italian national team, guiding them to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Euro 2016.

During the same summer, the Italian manager joined Chelsea and achieved the Premier League championship in his debut season. However, he was dismissed at the end of his second season, despite winning the FA Cup, due to a strained relationship with the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich. In 2019, he made a comeback to Italian football as he was appointed by Inter, leading the team to win the Scudetto in his second season. However, he resigned from his position as the club was facing financial troubles, which forced them to sell two key players, Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi. Former Juventus sporting director, Fabio Paratici, convinced Conte to join Tottenham in November 2021. Despite a strong start with Spurs, guiding them to a top-four finish and securing qualification for the Champions League, the two parties decided to part ways in March 2023.
