Juventus coach Antonio Conte hasn’t ruled out managing abroad after being presented with the coach of the season award for 2011/12.
The Italian was given the honour after leading Juventus to the Scudetto last season, only five years after the club was competing in Italy’s second division after the match-fixing scandal.
“It won’t be easy to win the league again. We’ll try to do it, bearing in mind that the Champions League is a dream and the dreams sometimes may come true or may vanish,” Conte said.
British media have speculated that Conte could be the man to take over at Chelsea later this year and when asked about the reports, the tactician offered no denials.
“If I receive compliments I’m happy because this means we are doing a good job,” Conte said.
“It means that one year ago the club made the right choice. I always say that my professional growth is linked to the growth of the team. I’m really close to my players and my players are really close to me.”
