Ventura to replace Conte

Giampiero Ventura will take over as Italy coach after Euro 2016, Italian Football Federation president Carlo Tavecchio announced on Tuesday, Italian media reported.

Former Torino coach Ventura replaces Antonio Conte, who heads for English Premier League giants Chelsea next season, after the European Championships in France from June 10-July 10.

While Conte was a three-time Serie A winner with Juventus, the 68-year-old Ventura has a less impressive coaching CV in his three decades as a manager.

A modest player during his footballing career in the third division, Ventura's coaching portfolio is equally modest, with no Champions League matches, and having only competed in the Europa League in 2013-2014 with Torino.

He joined Torino in 2012, after several forays into Serie A. Torino finished 12th in Serie A last season.
