Former Juventus, Inter, and Italy national team boss Antonio Conte addressed his coaching future following his departure from Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year.

The 54 year-old left the English side in March and recently turned down an approach from Napoli, unwilling to join a team midseason. Despite this, Conte admitted the Partenopei are just one of the clubs he’d be keen to manage at some point.

“Napoli and Roma are certainly two places I’d like to experience given the passion they possess,” he told Rai2.

“I’m hopeful one day I’ll have the chance to experience this, but I wouldn’t join a team midseason. Primarily because those are situations where the squad is constructed prior to your arrival.”
