Antonio Conte: Press conference

This morning, Antonio Conte, the new Italy coach, has been presented to the many journalists in Rome. Below his most important thoughts…

I’m excited and I can not deny it. All the coaches in the world would be at my place today. Italy is one of the most important national teams in the world with four World Cup on its chest. I am proud that the president thought about me.”

About the Italian team…

The actual players are the ones who have faced the World Cup, but I am convinced that they are good players. I am convinced that we need them to become a team. In this way, the technical gap may be reduced. I like tough challenges, just think about three years ago when I arrived at Juventus.

Worried about Rossi and Balotelli…

Rossi is a legacy, I hope he can solve his problems for the good of Fiorentina and of the national team. However, I do not like to speak about single players. The summon, however, must be deserved because I value everything at 360 °. In times of difficulty men are more useful than great players. It is better to have a great man rather than a great player.

You are condemned to win

The victory is a sweet sentence, I live to win. You know very well what I think about the difference between winning and losing a match. It is like to live or die.

You should be able to conquer all the Italian fans…

Today I am the coach of all Italians, I represent the whole country and I am proud of it. Today in my head and in my heart there is the blue, a beautiful color, inside which there are many other colors. “

About the possible interference by the sponsor on your choices…

Anyone who knows myself humanly and professionally knows that no one can choose on my behalf.”
