2016
Premier League
Antonio Conte has been calling the shots from Chelsea's sideline since July of 2016.

After a quiet beginning, in which he completely rearranged the team, the Blues became more and more confident and started winning matches. They conquered the ranks and reached the first position where they were to stay, winning 13 consecutive matches en route to becoming the Winter Champions.
From October to December Mr. Conte was consecutively named the Barclay’s Manager of the Month; and in March he won the Manager of the Year at the London Football Awards.
Antonio Conte conquered the Premier League three days in advance, on the 12th of May, with a 0 - 1 victory versus West Bromwich.
What Conte is doing at Chelsea is extraordinary. Antonio has determination, ideas, personality and experience. He's mature as a coach now and I'm truly happy for him.

2014
The Italian National Team

Antonio Conte joined the Italian National Football Team on August 19, 2014. The newly-elected FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio had assigned him a dual role –management of the Italian National Team, along with bolstering and coordinating the national youth football program. On September 4th, he made his debut, with a resounding two-nil victory in an exhibition match versus the Netherlands.

Italy qualified for Euro 2016 by defeating Azerbaijan in Baku 3-1. When the Italian team arrived at Euro 2016 in France, they advanced to the Round of 16, where they shut out the Spanish Champions 2-0. Conte’s experience as the Manager came to an end in the quarter-finals on July 2nd, when the Italian National Football Team lost a nail-biter on penalties to the German squad.

I am convinced I have some good players and if we manage to turn them into a team, I think we can compete on the same level as teams with more individual talent. I like tough challenges.
 
Italy needs a leader and I think Conte is our man. I think he is the most important manager on the field. His great professionalism requires no assistance, we have given Conte free rein and so he is the one calling the shots now.

 Carlo Tavecchio, President of the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio

Conte is a maestro. For me he is the best manager of recent years. Those who don't know him very well think he is moody, but he is a good guy and an exemplary pro who lives and breathes football.

2011-2013
Successes with Juventus F.C.
Conte came to the Italian National Team after three seasons with Juventus. Three seasons that finally saw Juve back in the competition. On 31 May 2011, he signed a two-year contract that bound him to this Turin club until 30 June 2013.

He was back in an official bianconero role, after having played for them for thirteen years, wearing the captain’s armband for five.

Results were quick to come: the first season saw them actually win the Scudetto one match before the end of the championship.

Juventus remained unbeaten for 38 consecutive games, breaking the previous record from the 1949/1950 season. It was their season of invincibility.
In August, they won the first Supercoppa Italiana against Naples in Beijing.

The 2012-2013 seasons saw Juve win both the Scudetto and the Supercoppa.
The third season... broke all the records.

Juve won not only the championship, but also achieved two historic milestones:
• a European record with 102 championship points;
• an unbeaten home record, gaining all the available 57 points.

2007-2011
Early victories
Before coming to Juve, Conte was Manager at Bari and Siena, taking both teams back into Serie A.

He came to Bari at the end of 2007, after Materazzi resigned.
That first year saw him save the "Galletti", as the Bari players are called, keeping them halfway up the league table. While the following year brought the first successes: on 8 May 2009, Bari earned itself promotion into Serie A, four matches before the end of the season on the feast day of patron Saint Nicholas.

The capital city of Puglia had been waiting eight years for this moment.

During his time at Bari, in October 2008, Conte graduated with full honours in Motor Sciences with an emblematic thesis entitled "Manager psychology", in which he studied the characteristics of all his managers... from Fascetti onwards.

After a short interlude at Atalanta for the 2010/2011 season, Antonio Conte returned to Siena, which had just been relegated to Serie B.
He was so in sync with the team that they played an excellent championship and were promoted back into Serie A three games early.

2005
Debut as Manager
At the end of the 2003/2004 season, aged thirty-five, he left Juventus, hung up his boots, and decided to become a manager.
I'm giving myself a few years’ time to join a big club. If I don't succeed, I will spend much more time with my family.
While Conte was on the manager training course in Coverciano, he was asked to work as assistant to De Canio, manager of Siena, an offer that was hard to refuse.

Again in Tuscany, in 2006, came his first role as manager for Arezzo, a Serie B team.

His aptitude and qualities as Manager combined with his experience as a player.
