Antonio Conte Appointed as Napoli’s New Head Coach: A Fresh Chapter Begins

After a 15-month hiatus, Antonio Conte has resumed his coaching duties, taking the helm at Napoli.

Succeeding Francesco Calzona, this former Juventus and Italy skipper inked a triennial contract with the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona outfit.

Departing Tottenham in a mutually agreed exit, Conte steps back into a managerial role aiming to resurrect Napoli’s fortunes following a lackluster 2023-24 outing.

Last season, fresh off a Scudetto triumph, Napoli floundered, ending up 10th. Their season was tumultuous, featuring three managerial changes with Rudi Garcia and Walter Mazzarri making way before Calzona’s brief tenure.

From 2012 to 2014, Conte clinched three consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus and later secured a Scudetto with Inter. He also spearheaded Chelsea to Premier League success in 2017.

Aurelio De Laurentiis, the club president, stated, “Securing Antonio Conte as Napoli’s coach fills me with pride.”

“Antonio is a preeminent leader and coach. With him, we embark on a vital restructuring after our recent championship victory,” De Laurentiis added.

De Laurentiis believes this marks the dawn of an exciting new era for Napoli.

On Napoli’s official portal, Conte shared his enthusiasm, “I am thrilled to lead such a notable club.”

“I vow to devote myself entirely to the club’s advancement. My team and I are fully committed,” he affirmed.
