Italian reveals ambition after sealing back-to-back Serie A titles.
Juventus coach Antonio Conte has revealed his ambition of managing a Premier League side in the future, after celebrating back-to-back Serie A titles.
The former Juve midfielder, who played 419 times for the club as a player, has replicated his success at managerial level having clinched two league titles in his two years in charge.
They went through the entire season unbeaten last year, and despite finding the task of repeating that achievement a little more problematic this time round, they remain the team to beat in Italy.
While the Bianconeri fell short in their European bid this season, bowing out to German champions Bayern, they have shown a domestic consistency over the last two seasons that could see them go on to dominate for years to come.
However, club officials will be wary of Conte’s recent comments and despite being “in the place I’ve always dreamt to be”, he is still intrigued by the prospect of coaching in England.
“It’s not a secret the fact that I would like to work abroad. I hope, in the future, to be a coach in the Premier League,” the 43-year-old told reporters as quoted by BBC Sport.
“I didn’t go abroad as a football player. I would love to do it as a manager. I have this aspiration, as this would enable me to improve my professional career. And the time will come for that,” he added.
While his comments appear to suggest he is open to the prospect of trying his hand at managing in England in the future, it isn’t expected that the Italian tactician is realistically thinking of leaving the club in the immediate future.
