Many a dream got shattered as Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after failing to get past Sweden in the World Cup qualifier second leg. The four-time champions failed to break the deadlock in the regulation time, sending Sweden into the World Cup.

The Azzurri looked in a mood to settle things as they started attacking from the very first minute but due to some old school defending from the Swedish defenders they paid the price.

For the first time since 1958 Italy will not be seen rubbing shoulders with the international heavyweights. This incident has shaken up the whole nation and gaffer Giampiero Ventura is likely to be shown the door following their disappointing performance in the World Cup Qualifiers.

A host of names have come in discussion and Antonio Conte’s name has come up as a possible replacement. Chelsea manager’s relationship with the club board is not at all good following a disappointing summer transfer window and if a managerial offer comes to him he would definitely embrace it with both hands.

Conte will be entering into his final year of the contract in the next summer. If he leaves Chelsea for the Italian top job, the probable candidates to replace him might be.

Carlo Ancelotti

The former Chelsea manager might be interested in revisiting the Stamford Bridge if Conte departs. The manager was brutally sacked after he led Chelsea to the second position in the 2010/11 season.

Ancelotti arrived at the club in the previous year and enjoyed a terrific start to his maiden Premier League managerial career as he won a double of FA Cup and Premier League with the club.

The Italian manager was sacked by Bayern Munich following their underwhelming start to the season and right now is enjoying his free time. He has a very good knowledge of the club and might be interested in resurrecting his career.

Roberto Mancini

Another Italian manager who tasted success in the Premier League. Roberto Mancini kick-started a brand new progressive era at Manchester City as he lifted the Premier League title with Manchester City back in 2011/12 and could emulate his success if he is given an appropriate opportunity.

Thomas Tuchel

The former Borussia Dortmund manager is not employed since the German club sacked him last season and he could be open to a move to Premier League. Heis blessed with new ideas and would be more than happy to try his luck at the West London outfit.
