Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte says he is fully committed to the club, and not focused on Italy.
The former Juventus manager, was in charge of Italy for two years, before swapping the Azzurri for Chelsea.
Gian Piero Ventura his replacement was relieved of his duties on November 15, as Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup, for the first time since 1958.
When asked if he would be interested in the Italy post, he told reporters: “[For now] I am very focused on doing my best for Chelsea, and my only focus now is to try to create a good structure at Chelsea.
“[I want to] create a good basis with this team, we won last season but we know very well there is a lot of work to do, and I am very focused on Chelsea and totally committed to the club.
“My feeling is the same as any Italian person. First of all, I am very sad. This is a big stop for our football movement. After 60 years and you miss the World Cup. You know very well the importance of football in Italy.
“Football is at the top of the interest of every single person but I think you have to try together to find the right solution. Every department in Italy has to take the responsibility – not only one, two or three people because when you fail, the whole country fails.
“It is not the fault of one or two or three people. In this case, I think it is my failure, your failure [in the media], the failure of Italy and I think that this moment is very sad for us. But we must use this moment to reflect and to try and to find the right solution, not only with words but also facts.
“If you find a manager and you don’t put him in the job in the best way to change something, then it is not enough to change only the manager. You must also put this person in the best condition to change something, not for them to find a lot of obstacles in their way.”
