Conte interested in a future MLS job: "I would like to go to America"

Antonio Conte, the previous Inter and Chelsea manager, has been speaking out about his future intentions since leaving the Scudetto winners.

Conte has suggested that he would be interested in managing in

Major League Soccer

in the future, after revealing that he wants to experience living in the United States. 

Conte is a free agent after leaving Inter Milan last month after winning the Serie A title for the first time in a decade. 

Former Chelsea manager has made preliminary conversations with Tottenham about a possible return to the

Premier League

, but a deal appears improbable. 

After his departure from Inter, the 51-year-old spoke about his plans for the future; he told



"I would like to have experiences abroad. I would like to go to America


This is likely to alarm MLS teams if they have a managerial opening in the near future; however, it's unclear if Conte refers to the next few seasons or the long term. 

Conte also revealed what motivates him as a manager, stating that he strives to stay beyond of his comfort zone. 

That would explain why, during his management career, he has never stayed in one role for more than three years. 

"I think I am a person who is not satisfied with 'comfortable' situations," said the former Juventus and Italy boss. "I think I have [always] chosen the most difficult situation.

"The goal when I signed for Inter was a three-year project to bring Inter back, to have ambition to compete for important goals again. Being able to do it in the second year was a great thing.

"Being a coach is certainly not easy, especially if you want to do it at a high level and if you also have the skills to do it at a high level.

"Because in any job the pressure, the expectations, the stress, is really a lot. You have to be good at managing certain situations knowing that you always find yourself alone."

Despite his departure, Conte believes Inter's title triumph marks the start of a new era of success for the club, which has finally broken Juventus' dominance in

Serie A


"The boys have matured,” he added. “It is inevitable that they are at the beginning [of a journey]. For many it is the first time they have won something important in their careers.

"But as I always say, when you start winning then the victory must enter your brain. The guys have been really good. All of them are starting a winning journey.

“Not only have they won an Italian championship, but they have won a championship that for nine or ten years had only had one story, and the fact that they accomplished this feat is a great credit.”
