Conte steps down from Italy post

Antonio Conte is to step down as Italy coach after Euro 2016.

Conte is rumoured to be close to agreeing a three-year deal to become manager of Chelsea in the summer and his decision to step down from his position with the national team paves the way from him to take over at Stamford Bridge.

The 46-year-old has made no secret of his desire to return to club management and Italian football federation president Carlo Tavecchio has confirmed Conte will step down after this summer's finals in France.

"Conte will leave after the European Championships. He is missing day-to-day training," Tavecchio said.

Chelsea have been without a permanent manager since December when Jose Mourinho departed and the club are widely expected to confirm Conte's appointment in the near future.

"Right now our highest concentration is solely on the European Championships where we will try to make the most of our potential," Conte said in a statement.

"Anyone who knows me knows that my commitment will be total. Then I feel I must go back to coaching a club where training takes place every day."
