Italy coach Conte proud of Ballon d'Or nomination

Italy coach Antonio Conte is proud being nominated for the Ballon d'Or.

Conte made the shortlist for the coaching gong.

"I am honoured to be included as one of those nominated for the 2014 Coach of the Year award," Conte has commented in a statement released through the Italian Football Federation's website.

"Because it represents on the one hand a recognition for the work, but on the other hand a further incentive to do well at the helm of the national team.

"My candidacy and also that of Carlo Ancelotti also confirms the value of the coaching school at Coverciano, demonstrating that our football is still alive and is able to convey innovative ideas and win."
