Conte Hints at Potential Napoli or Roma Managerial Role

Antonio Conte was head-hunted by Aurelio De Laurentiis in a bid to replace Rudi Garcia on the bench, but the ex-Tottenham Hotspur manager respectfully turned down the offer.  However, he has not ruled out coaching Napoli in the future, or perhaps even Roma.

Speaking on a show on Rai 2 (via Calciomercato), Conte did not hesitate to share his thoughts on recent happenings.

“They are two places (Roma and Napoli) that I would like to experience for the passion they express. I hope that one day there will be the possibility of having this experience,” before explaining : “I wouldn’t join a team mid-season because those are situations where the team is created before your arrival.”

He then revealed his heartbreak at leaving Juventus following a hattrick of Scudetto titles that kickstarted a decade of dominance by the Bianconeri.

“What I regretted most is the one at Juventus after three years . When even for small things big problems are created, its time to leave.”

Conte also disclosed the fact that he rejected a move to Saudi Arabia, when asked to comment about Roberto Mancini’s choice to take over the Saudi Arabia national team.

“I don’t want to get into his story but I can tell you that according to the newspapers, Arabia would have made an offer to Mancini as well as others. I was close to getting involved too, but I refused.”
