Antonio Conte has been hired as manager of Inter Milan.

Conte spent the 18-19 season out of soccer following his firing by Chelsea at the end of 17-18.

“A new chapter in my life is beginning, I’m really excited,” said Conte on Inter’s official website. “Through my work, I’ll try to repay all of the trust that the president and directors have placed in me.

“I have chosen Inter because of the club it is, because of the project’s sound basis and how ambitious it is. Because of Inter’s history. I was struck by the club’s transparency and the desire to bring Inter back to where it belongs.”

Conte replaces Luciano Spalletti following Inter's fourth place finish in Serie A.
