Conte picks new Italy staff

Antonio Conte is the new Italy Coach, but not all his technical staff will come from Juventus.

The ex-Bianconeri boss was appointed yesterday and will hold a Press conference on Tuesday, while he’ll begin work in Rome on Monday.

It’s reported Conte has already chosen his assistant managers, as Angelo Alessio and Massimo Carrera accompanied him at Juventus.

The fitness coach will also be a familiar face to Bianconeri fans – Paolo Bertelli – who was sacked by Juventus this summer despite being named best Italian fitness coach for the second time in 2014.

Conte still needs to pick a goalkeeping coach and it remains to be seen who he will bring in.

Claudio Filippi was confirmed at Juve by their new boss Massimiliano Allegri, so is not available for the Nazionale.
