A few weeks ago, Rafael Benitez left his managerial role of the Italian side Napoli. Rafael Benitez decided to do this because Real Madrid offered him with the chance to turn into the coach of the Spanish team.
Rafael Benitez accepted the coaching job of Real Madrid as he replaced Carlo Ancelotti who was sacked on May 25.
When Rafael Benitez resigned from coaching Napoli, a string of rumors and reports began to emerge which linked Antonio Conte with taking up the coaching position at the Italian club but Conte has no intentions of doing that as he wants to remain being in charge of the Italian national football team.
Italy’s Antonio Conte said: “I would like to clarify that these rumors of me leaving the national team to join a club have never really bothered me, because I have a contract with the Italian federation until July 2016 and I want to stay here. I have seen my name linked with many clubs over the last year and not only have I never thought to leave the national team, but I’m pretty sure that the clubs never thought I would quit my job here.’’
Antonio Conte took charge of the Italian national football team on August 14 of 2014 as he replaced CesarePrandelli who decided to resign as the coach of Italy after going through a disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign where they lost against Costa Rica and Uruguay and failed on making it past the group stages.
The arrival of Antonio Conte has helped the Italian national football team in recovering from that horrendous World Cup as the Italian squad has claimed victories against: Malta, Azebaijan, Norway and Netherlands under the guidance of Conte.
Italy is also positioned in the 2nd place of Group H of and is one of the favorites on making it past the group stages of the 2016 Euro’s and has been performing much better since the appointment of Antonio Conte as the coach. He has no desire of resigning anytime soon.
