According to the UK Sun, Antonio Conte is not interested in being Newcastle United’s next manager.
Since the Premier League was taken over by new owners funded by a Saudi Arabian consortium, the Italian has been associated with the club.
As a new era dawns at St James Park, current Magpies manager Steve Bruce is poised to be fired.
Conte is currently unemployed, having left Inter Milan at the end of last season.
He isn’t interested in the Newcastle job because he wants to lead a team that can win right away.
The Tyneside team is presently 19th in the table, putting them in danger of relegation.
It’s expected that the new ownership will encourage a transfer market frenzy.
Conte would have a plethora of resources at his disposal, but he would realistically require time to assemble his squad before being able to compete for trophies.
