Antonio Conte

Napoli have confirmed the appointment of former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as their new head coach on a three-year deal.

The 54-year-old Italian is the fourth head coach to be appointed since the departure of Scudetto-winning manager Luciano Spalletti following the 2022-23 season.

His appointment comes after Napoli endured a disastrous title-defence which saw them finish 10th place in Serie A, in what is regarded as one of the worst title defences in the league’s history.

“Napoli is a place of global importance. I am happy and excited at the idea of ​​sitting on the blue bench,” Conte said to the club website.

He continued: “I can certainly promise one thing: I will do my utmost for the growth of the team and the club. My commitment, together with that of my staff, it will be total.”

“I am very proud that the new coach of Napoli is Antonio Conte,’ said De Laurentiis. ‘Antonio is a top coach, a leader, with whom I am sure that the necessary refoundation can begin after the conclusion of the cycle that led us to win the scudetto last year after many seasons at the top of Italian football.

“Today an important new chapter in the history of Napoli opens.”

The Italian coach arrives in Naples after 15 months away from the game. His last position at Tottenham Hotspur came to an end after less than two years in north London.

Antonio Conte has been made coach in Serie A on four separate occasions, three times with Juventus, and a solitary time with Inter Milan.
