Antonio Conte comes to Napoli: the Italian manager signs a three-year contract to return to Serie A until 2027

The Serie A coaching that has been rumored for months is finally official. Antonio Conte is the new head coach of Napoli. The Italian manager returns to Italy to coach a Serie A team after his experience in the Premier League at Tottenham Hotspur, signing a three-year contract until the summer of 2027 with Aurelio De Laurentiis' club. After a disappointing season, Napoli is starting a new chapter under Conte, who returns to the Italian Serie A three years after his departure.

In the official statement, Napoli owner De Lurentiis said: “I am very proud that the new coach of Napoli is Antonio Conte. Antonio is a top coach, a leader, with whom I am sure the necessary reconstruction can begin after the conclusion of the contest.” the cycle that led to us winning the Scudetto last year after many seasons at the top of Italian football.”

Conte praised his new club in a statement.

“Napoli is a place of global importance. I am happy and excited at the idea of ​​being on the Azzurri bench. I can certainly promise one thing: I will do my utmost for the growth of the team and the club. My commitment, together with that of my staff, will be total.”

After starting his coaching career at Arezzo, Siena and Bari, Juventus appointed Conte in the summer of 2011, where he returned the club to winning the Scudetto for the first time since the Calciopoli scandal in 2006. In the summer of 2014, Conte resigned from the club. the job and became coach of the Italian national team, leading the Azzurri to the quarter-finals of UEFA Euro 2016.

In the same summer, the Italian coach joined Chelsea, where he won the Premier League title in his first year in charge, but was sacked at the end of his second season despite winning the FA Cup thanks to a difficult relationship with club owner Roman Abrahmovic. In 2019, he made his return to Italian football after Inter decided to appoint him, and won the Scudetto in his second season, but then resigned again as the club was forced to sell two key players from its squad in Romelu Lukaku . and Achraf Hakimi due to financial problems. Former Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici convinced Conte to join Tottenham in November 2021, and after a strong start to his Spurs experience, taking Spurs to a top-four finish and qualifying for the Champions League, the two teams will split up in March 2023.

Conte is now ready to be back and De Laurentiis decided to appoint him and his backroom staff to return the club to glory after Napoli failed to qualify for European competitions and finished tenth just one year after winning a historic Scudetto in the Italian league. Napoli, after parting ways with Luciano Spalletti in the summer of 2023, appointed three managers last season (Rudi Garcia, Walter Mazzarri and Francesco Calzona), but none of them could rediscover the magic that the club had during the previous season . Will Conte be able to do it?
