Career

Player

He began to play football in this city, within the U.S. Lecce youth team, before making his Serie A debut with the first squad in 1985. He was signed by Juventus in 1992, being later made captain before the promotion of Alessandro Del Piero to this role. During the 1998-1999 season when Del Piero suffered a horrendous leg injury, Conte returned to the captaincy and led Juventus to the UEFA Champions League semifinals. He maintains the captaincy till the season 2001/02.

In 2002-2003, Conte was part of the Juventus team which reached the UEFA Champions League final only to lose on penalties to AC Milan, with Conte himself coming closest to winning the game for Juventus in normal time when he crashed a header off the crossbar early in the second half.

Conte became one of the most decorated and influential players of Juventus F.C. history.

He played for Italy national football team and was a participant at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the 2000 UEFA European Championship.

Coach

After having retired as footballer, Conte worked as assistant manager for Siena alongside Luigi De Canio in the 2005–06 season.

In July 2006 he was appointed coach of Serie B side Arezzo: however, after a series of disappointing results, he was sacked on October 31, 2006; on March 13, 2007 he was reinstated at the Arezzo head coaching position, as his predecessor failed to gain any significant improvement. In his second time at Arezzo he led the team to five consecutive wins in a row, and 19 points in 7 matches, which allowed the Tuscan side to fill the gap from the last safe spot; his team however did not manage to avoid relegation, and Arezzo dropped into Serie C1 on the final matchday, only one point behind Spezia.

On December 27, 2007 he was appointed by Bari to replace Giuseppe Materazzi for the second half of their Serie B 2007–08 campaign.[2] He has since done very well, during Bari's 2007–08 season around from relegation-threatened to a comfortable midtable position. In the following season, 2008–09, Bari were crowned Serie B champions, being promoted to Serie A for the 2009–10 season. On June 2009, after weeks of rumours linking Conte to the vacant managerial role at Juventus, he agreed in principle for a contract extension to keep him at Bari for the new season; however, on June 23 Bari announced to have rescinded the contract with Antonio Conte by mutual consent.[3] After Claudio Ranieri was sacked of Juventus, Conte was appointed by the club as one of the candidates to become the new coach.[4] However, the "bianconeri" hired Ciro Ferrara as the first team manager. He stated that he would like to be the Juventus coach in the future, because he thinks he is ready to assume that work.[5] On September 21, 2009 Atalanta appointed him to replace Angelo Gregucci.[6]

After a good start at the helm of the orobici, Atalanta under Conte's reign began struggling in result from November, leading to protest from local supporters and troubles between Conte himself and the organized ultras of the club. On January 6, 2010, Conte was repeatedly contested by Atalanta fans during a home game against Napoli, ended in a 0–2 loss for the nerazzurri; the matchday ended with a police intervention to avoid confrontation between Conte and the Atalanta ultras.[7] The next day, Conte tended his resignations to the club, leaving them in 19th place.[8]
