Football legend, Diego Maradona has faulted Antonio Conte’s decision to sign a contract with Chelsea while still working as Italy coach. The Argentine described the move as shameful and disgusting. In an interview with Italian broadcaster Piuenne, the former Racing Club manager said : 
“This story about Conte is shameful. He’s the coach of the Italian national team, which carries incredible prestige in the world, and it’s disgusting that he’s gone and signed a contract with Chelsea. It’s making so many coaches have to do nothing for a year and go without a club because there’s always the same old coaches moving around.”
