Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte in talks for another job

Antonio Conte is reportedly in talks with Sky Sports in Italy to take on punditry duties while he awaits his next managerial move.

The 51-year-old dramatically left his role as Inter boss this summer despite guiding them to the Serie A title, with the Italian unhappy with the club’s transfer plans this window.

Conte has been linked with a number of vacancies following his San Siro departure, with Real Madrid interested in the former Chelsea boss, while he held talks with Tottenham Hotspur.

As part of Conte’s Inter exit, he agreed not to take on an Italian club until the end of the year, so with very few managerial options at present, the 51-year-old is biding his time before making his next move.

And Corriere della Sera, via the Daily Mail, reports that Conte is in talks with Sky Sport Italy over taking on punditry duties for the 2021-22 campaign.

Sky are understood to have offered Conte a gig as a special guest pundit, with the Italian taking to the television studio for high-calibre games, including the Champions League, Premier League and big FA Cup ties.

The Italian outlet expects Conte’s next job to be in England, where he enjoyed huge success at Chelsea from 2016 to 2018.
