Antonio Conte is an Italian football manager and former footballer. He is currently the coach of the Italian football national team.
Playing as a midfielder, Conte became one of the most decorated and influential players in the history of Juventus. He stood out due to his tenacity and leadership, captaining the team and winning the UEFA Champions League and 5 Serie A titles, among other honours. He also played for the Italian national team and was a participant at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the 2000 UEFA European Championship, where, in both occasions, the Italians finished in second place. Conte was known to be a combative, energetic, and tactically versatile midfielder throughout his career, who could play anywhere in midfield. Conte was mainly known for his accurate tackling and his ability to start attacking plays by switching the defence into attack; he also had a penchant for occasionally scoring spectacular goals, and was good in the air.
