Hopping on a moving train is not good for top coaches and right now, I don't feel the need to return immediately, Conte said. Maybe I'll change my mind in two or three months -- never say never -- but today I'm really convinced that it's best to wait for a project all of my own.

Roberto (Mancini) I think is the right person to start this path with the national team, said Conte. I see many good young players. It's good news for the future. We need to be patient always remembering that we're talking of the Italian national team.

Real Madrid? As I see it, it is better to wait until the end of the season than to take a train running now, said Conte. I want to wait for June and start again with a new project. In three months I could change my mind and deny everything, but I've always thought of it this way.
