The 49-year-old returns to management as he replaces sacked Luciano Spalletti at the San Siro who led Inter Milan to a fourth position in the Serie A this season.
‘A new chapter in my life is beginning, I’m really excited,’ said Conte on Inter’s official website. Through my work, I’ll try to repay all of the trust that the president and directors have placed in me.
‘I have chosen Inter because of the club it is, because of the project’s sound basis and how ambitious it is. Because of Inter’s history.
‘I was struck by the club’s transparency and the desire to bring Inter back to where it belongs.’
On Conte’s appointment, Inter president Steven Zhang said:
‘I’m sure that Antonio Conte is one of the best coaches out there.’
‘I’m certain that he’ll help us achieve our objective and fulfil our mission, one which has always remained the same: to make this club one of the best in the world again.’
