Inter Milan have appointed former Juventus boss Antonio Conte as their new manager, replacing a sacked Luciano Spalletti.
The 49-year-old Italian international has been out of work since being fired by Chelsea last summer after two years at Stamford Bridge where he guided the Blues to a Premier League title in his first season and an FA Cup trophy in the subsequent season.
Prior to his sacking, Spalletti has guided Inter to a fourth place finish, sending them into next season’s UEFA Champions League.
“A new chapter in my life is beginning, I’m really excited. I have chosen Inter because of the club it is, because of how ambitious it is,” the ex-Italy national team head coach said.
“I was struck by the club’s transparency and the desire to bring Inter back to where it belongs.”
Following his appointment, Inter president Steven Zhang said he is “sure Antonio Conte is one of the best coaches out there”.
“I’m certain he’ll help us achieve our objective and fulfill our mission, one which has always remained the same: to make this club one of the best in the world again.”
