Juventus manager Antonio Conte admits he would love a chance to manage in the Premier League one day, according to BBC Sport.

The young coach has enjoyed a tremendous start to his career in management, leading Juventus to two consecutive titles in Serie A, attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea and PSG.

The Italian’s first title with Juve was won last season in an incredible year which saw the team go unbeaten in the league. They retained their crown this year and have been hailed for doing it whilst playing a stylish brand of football.

Speaking after his side wrapped up the title, the 43-year-old said: “I hope, in the future, to be a coach in the Premier League.

“I didn’t go abroad as as a football player. I would love to do it as a manager. I have this aspiration, as this would enable me to improve my professional career. And the time will come for that.”

There is a vacancy at Stamford Bridge this summer, though it is expected that Chelsea will bring back former manager Jose Mourinho from Real Madrid.

Roberto Mancini’s job at Manchester City is another that doesn’t look safe, following a poor season in the league, Europe and finally an embarrassing FA Cup final loss to underdogs Wigan yesterday.

Conte could make the move to English football one day, though he added that for now he is living the dream with current club Juventus.

“I’m in the place I’ve always dreamt to be when I started my career as a manager.”
