Italy legend Alessandro Del Piero has called on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte to return to manage his home country once again.

Del Piero wants his former Juventus teammate to manage the Azzurri again after they failed to qualify for the World Cup.

Italy coach Gian Piero Ventura failed to qualify Italy for the World Cup for the first time since 1958, and Ventura has said he won’t walk away from the job, which has made the Italian legend to remember Conte.

“He did great with Juve of course and a great job with the national team,” Del Piero told Sport360.

“We would love to have him back in Italy, of course, because he is a great coach. He would improve any team and this is what he did with Chelsea last season and what he did with Juve as well.

“We had some problems and he fixed it, then won the title. He has some amazing qualities and that’s why he’s coaching the best teams in the world.

“I hope he will have a great period with Chelsea and then maybe one day come back.”
