Juventus manager Antonio Conte plays down reports that he could take over from Cesare Prandelli as Italy manager after the World Cup.

Juventus manager Antonio Conte has distanced himself from suggestions that he could become the new Italy manager.

The 44-year-old has been tipped as a contender to take over from Cesare Prandelli following next year's World Cup in Brazil, but Conte has insisted that he is content with Juve.

"I think someone wants to send me away from Juventus," BBC Sport quotes Conte as saying. "For me the national team is led by the right man. I have a contract with Juventus and I'm very happy in Turin."

Meanwhile, Italy are preparing to take on Bulgaria in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.
