Italy coach Antonio Conte was on Monday named as Chelsea's new manager on a three-year deal starting after Euro 2016, the Premier League club announced.

The 46-year-old former Juventus boss took over the Italian national team in August 2014 and secured their qualification for the European Championship.

He was first tipped as a successor to Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge last month.
