Former manager asked to move back to Chelsea next season if he wants power

Antonio Conte

All of sudden, a return of Antonio Conte to Chelsea has become a topic in the Italian media. It all started this week, when a report claimed that the manager used an intermediary with good connections with the Blues to make known he’s available to return to the Stamford Bridge.

Now, some interesting things were said when Marco Piccari talked to TMW Radio. Talking about Conte’s future, Marco made some comments about his potential return to Chelsea.

Conte previously managed Chelsea for 2 seasons, from 2016 to 2018, and was fairly successful. He led the Blues to a Premier League title in the 2016/17 season and 2 consecutive FA Cup finals, winning it in 2017/18.

Conte should move back to Chelsea if he wants power

Talking about Conte, Marco Piccari said: “I don’t know. On Conte I would leave various scenarios open because we can’t give anything for certain. If he wants to coach in Italy with the old system, i.e. asking for a high salary and high quality players, it’s better for him to go to the Premier League. If he wants to go that route he can go to Chelsea; if instead he wants to coach in Italy he must take a different path.”

Stamford Bridge would be Conte’s preference

Former Chelsea boss, Conte, has been drawing enough interest from the Italian media. A lot of Serie A clubs will be changing managers in the summer. Its only natural that the Italian manager would be in the news, especially because he doesn’t have a job at the moment.

Napoli were reportedly leading the race to hire Conte, but things seem to have changed now. Now it seems the general feeling is that Chelsea would have the manager’s preference, even though he’s still to publicly talk about that possibility.

The Blues are still to take a decision on the future of Mauricio Pochettino. It remains to be seen whether Conte would actually be considered to replace the Argentine this summer.
