Juventus coach Antonio Conte admits he'd like the Italy job.
Cesare Prandelli will leave his post after next summer's World Cup.
â€śIt would be a great challenge, because as a Coach you have to do everything in a very short space of time,â€ť Conte told the official club magazine HurrĂ Juventus.
â€śYou often have only 10 days to put your mark on the squad and express your idea of football. Itâ€™s a difficult task, but in future Iâ€™d like to do it.
â€śA modern Coach has to be a fine psychologist. He has a daily rapport with 27-28 players, the medical staff, the directors, the fans and the media. Each time it requires a different strategy.
â€śAbove all I am interested in adopting the right tactic with my players. They are each different, as some need to be woken up harshly to provoke the right reaction, while others just need a kind word to ensure they donâ€™t collapse definitively.
â€śIf I were to choose a game to watch, itâ€™d be a Bayern Munich match. I admire Pep Guardiola a great deal.â€ť
