Italy coach Antonio Conte has said he would like to persuade Palermo forward Paulo Dybala to play for Italy rather than opting for either Argentina or Poland.

It follows previous criticism from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who once declared the forward to be "unmanageable" when they were together at Inter Milan.

And Roberto Mancini -- who managed Balotelli at Inter and Manchester City -- has also claimed in the past...

Italy approves reforms limiting clubs' squad size

Italy's head coach Antonio Conte unleashed his anger following his side's 1-0 victory over Albania on Tuesday.

ROME -- Italian football leaders approved radical reforms on Thursday to give the national coach more options and promote homegrown players from next season.
