Antonio Conte joining Chelsea would make Juventus 'very proud' - Marotta

Juventus' general manager Giuseppe Marotta says he would be pleased if former coach Antonio Conte were to be appointed the next manager of Chelsea.

Conte last week confirmed that he will not be extending his tenure coach of Italy beyond this summer's European Championship, paving the way for him to take over at Stamford Bridge next season.

His appointment by the Premier League club has yet to be confirmed despite holding talks with the club last month, with Guus Hiddink currently in charge on an interim basis following Jose Mourinho's departure in December.

"It's not official yet, but this would also be a reward for our decision to appoint him and we are very proud of it," Marotta told Mediaset television.

Antonio Conte led Juventus to three straight Serie A titles before leaving the club to coach Italy.

Juve hired Conte in 2011, after they had finished seventh under Luigi Delneri in what was also Marotta's first season at the club. Conte was an immediate hit, leading the Bianconeri to an unexpected Scudetto without losing a single game and also leading them to the final of the Coppa Italia.

Juve also won the next two league titles under Conte before he walked out on the Turin club in preseason to the 2014-15 campaign, and took the reins of Italy shortly after.

He was replaced by Massimiliano Allegri, who continued Conte's success by winning a league and cup double and surpassed his predecessor in Europe by taking Juve to the final of the Champions League, where they were beaten by Barcelona.

They have already been knocked out of the Champions League this season but Marotta gave a strong hint that the club would extend the coach's contract at the club, with his current deal running until the end of next season.

"It's such a simple question that we're not even talking about it anymore," he said. "Wins and defeats are not going to alter our relationship."
