Reading time: 1 Minute

Newly appointed Inter Milan manager, Antonio Conte has given reasons why he joined the Serie A giants from Chelsea.

Conte, who was sacked by Chelsea last summer, was appointed as Inter’s new coach Friday morning following the departure of Luciano Spalletti on Thursday.

The 49-year-old Italian said that he joined Inter because of the club’s history, project’s soundness and how ambitious it is.

“A new chapter in my life is beginning, I’m really excited,” Conte told the club’s official website.

“Through my work, I’ll try to repay all of the trust that the president [Steven Zhang] and directors have placed in me. I have chosen Inter because of the club it is, because of the project’s sound basis and how ambitious it is. Because of Inter’s history.

“I was struck by the club’s transparency and the desire to bring Inter back to where it belongs.”
