Conte on future amid Solari Real deal

Antonio Conte has responded to Sergio Ramos comments about ‘respect’ and opened up about his future amidst the talk of Real Madrid opting for Santiago Solari as their new head coach.

Conte, 49, has been without a club since the start of the new season after being sacked by Premier League side Chelsea to make way for compatriot Maurizio Sarri.

However, the Italian tactician was strongly linked with the Real hot seat after Julen Lopretgui’s nightmare start to the season and it’s been reported that captain Sergio Ramos played a key role nullifying the option.

Ramos was said to have taken his concerns personally to President Florentino Perez before his blunt media statement last month.

When asked if the team would benefit from having an imposing coach such as the Italian, he said: Respect is earned, it is not imposed. Neither a name nor another.

“We have won everything with coaches that you already know, in the end the management of the players is more important than the technical knowledge of a coach.”

Real chiefs chose instead to give the job to reserve team boss Santiago Solari on a temporary basis.

And he has now reportedly been handed the position on a permanent basis.

“Hopping on a moving train is not good for top coaches and right now, I don’t feel the need to return immediately,” Conte said, as quoted by the Mirror.
