Antonio Conte finding international management 'challenging'

Italy boss Antonio Conte admits that international management is "a challenge".

Italy manager Antonio Conte has admitted that it has been tough to adapt to the "differences" involved in international management.

The 45-year-old took the reins of the Azzurri in the aftermath of the 2014 World Cup, after previously leading Juventus to three successive Serie A titles.

When asked by FourFourTwo about the main contrast between club and international management, he said: "There are many differences.

"In a club you can work every day with your players, whilst with the national team, if you are lucky you can have them for nine to 10 days a month.

"It's a challenge with myself to transmit my ideas in such a short time."

Conte has led Italy to 2-0 victories over the Netherlands and Norway in his two games in charge so far.
