Italy coach Giampiero Ventura: My record stacks up with Conte

Italy coach Giampiero Ventura isn't bothered over comparisons with Antonio Conte.

Ventura succeeded Conte after the latter left for Chelsea over the summer.

“I do feel that I am surrounded by critics, but this is part of the game, I know that," Ventura told La Domenica Sportiva.

“At times I struggle to understand certain situations and would like the chance to talk to people about it.

“I hear them say 'Conte won three Scudetti when he took over the Italy squad.' That's fine, but I can say that while Conte was winning the Scudetti, I was selling players for millions more than we paid and sent many players into the Italy squad.

“These too are victories and everyone does what he can."
