Bruno Conti (born March 13, 1955 in Nettuno, province of Rome) is an Italian ex-football player and former coach of the Serie A club Roma from 14 March 2005 to 30 June 2005. His two sons Daniele and Andrea are both professional footballers.

Life and career

He was a winger. Among the best in the world during his time, Conti was extremely fast, a great passer and a phenomonal dribbler.

Conti was on the Italian national side that won the 1982 FIFA World Cup.[1] He was one of the best players in the tournament, and played an instrumental role in Italy's win in the Final. Despite being booked for a foul on Karl-Heinz Förster after 31 minutes, he was a central figure in Italy's second goal that was scored by Marco Tardelli and single-handedly created Italy's third goal by breaking down the right side from the half-way line and crossing to Alessandro Altobelli to score from the top of the box after 81 minutes. The Italians won the game 3-1.

During his domestic league career, he played for Roma from 1973 to 1990, winning the Scudetto in 1983 and Coppa Italia four times. He helped them to the 1984 European Cup Final but they were to be defeated on penalties by Liverpool, with Conti himself missing his penalty in the shootout. Following the departure of coach Luigi Del Neri, Conti moved up from his position as head of the club's youth teams to first team coach during the 2004-05 season. Conti did not possess a coaching licence, but was a respected figure. World Cup winners, however, are exempted from taking coaching exams. Remarkably, he led Roma to the Coppa Italia final, and to a UEFA Cup berth.

His short term role as caretaker manager finished when Roma appointed Luciano Spalletti as coach. His current position is a club director of football.
