Costacurta confirms Conte won't be next Italy coach

Paper Round Conte lined up for Italy job at the end of the season

Antonio Conte has said he would appreciate a public statement of support from the Chelsea hierarchy amid renewed speculation that he could be sacked, adding that he is open to the possibility of holding talks about a contract extension in the summer.

"A new Italy Coach is fundamental, but many forget that there are several options who are under contract, so it's hard to really talk about it right now".

As per a report from Italian outlet the Gazzetta Dello Sport this morning, Premier League champions Chelsea are prepared to pay the release clause of Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri, as the club prepare for life after Antonio Conte.

The Italian has aimed several barbs at the board over their perceived failings in the transfer market over the past few weeks, as well as exchanging angry words with José Mourinho, but the expectation at Stamford Bridge is that he will calm down now trading has ceased.

FIGC assistant commissioner Billy Costacurta confirms Gigi Di Biagio could be more than just the interim Italy Coach, but "Antonio Conte has pulled out".

After weeks of speculation, Chelsea finally brought in a forward but it doesn't seem like the rumours will go away now that the transfer window is shut.

"I know this has never happened in the past, so why should I hope for something different?"

Sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea have no plans to issue such a statement.

The Italian signed improved terms last summer which doubled his money from £4.5million to £9m a year as a reward for winning the Premier League title. When you play every three days, it's impossible to give intensity in these two days between one game and another.

And Spanish website Don Balon say Enrique is seeking guarantees from the west London club, and wants them to prove they are capable of signing big players by landing Dortmund star Reus. We need to start with the interviews, there is no rush but at the same time we do need to make a move.

"People have contracts with clubs all over the world, or personal engagements with clubs or national teams which we are not necessarily aware of". My will, my desire is to continue to stay here, to continue my work. I don't like to try to push with the press for a new contract.
