“Chelsea? It’s not a taboo for me, but I could talk about Italian teams too,” Conte said today ahead of Italy’s friendly with Spain.
“At the moment my thoughts and my pain are reserved for a choice [leaving the national team] that is not superficial and without heartache.
“I’ve taken the choice, and now we’ll see what the future holds, if there’s something beautiful in Italy or abroad. These choices are never taken lightly.
“What’s certain is that I won’t be coaching Italy for the next two years, my intention is to return to a club.
