Who made Antonio Conte turn into a committed and family man? Read all about her! If it’s meant to be, it will find a way – these words by Trisha Yearwood resonate so true with the believers of destiny and fate, and not surprisingly, it holds true for love! This is very prominent by looking at the lives of Antonio Conte and his wife, Elisabetta Muscarello Conte.
The Romantic Chapter
Born to Gianni Muscarello and his wife on December 3, 1975, in Turin, the Italian beauty has been known to be the sparkle and pride of her family.
Her love story with Antonio, too, isn’t short on shimmer either. It seems like a proper romantic escapade from literature – The couple was neighbors long before they started dating. Serendipity at its best, huh?
Always considered as a classic friend, the romance didn’t set in for these two for a long time. They stayed in touch, but then a meeting changed from platonic to romantic, and they started dating in 1998, even before Antonio had become a full-fledged Juventus player. The sparks flew, and they decided to pursue a life in a relationship. The strong and almost meant-to-be bond had its ups and downs, but they always managed to find comfort in their relationship, making it stronger.
As her husband’s (then boyfriend) career began to grow, making it to the national football team of Italy during 1994-2000, so did their bond as she cheered him on. The beautiful couple tied the knot on June 10, 2013, and promised to stand by each other forever with a beautiful blessing waiting for them ahead.
Blessings in Disguise
The couple was blessed with a baby girl in 2007, and the adorable little angel was then named Vittoria; fans rejoiced upon this news, and announcements were made with pride.
Following this, Elisabetta continued to support her husband’s glorious career as he moved from Arezzo to the Bari club. She has always been seen cheering him on, whether on the ground or off the same, and their love has always been known to make the cover page.
The Big Break Down
Accused of failure to report an attempted match-fixing during the Scommessopoli betting scandal of 2011-2012, Antonio Conte came under the scanner during his period as a manager of Siena on the complaint raised by former Siena player- Filippo Carobbio.
Even though none of the other 23 players of the Siena club corroborated these accusations, he was suspended from football for 10 months on August 10, 2012, which was reduced to four months after an appeal made on the 23rd later that month. However, Antonio Conte and his family have always maintained that he was wrongly accused and was innocent, and they left no page unturned in supporting him.
During an interview about the investigations, Conte didn’t fail to express his deepest gratitude for the unyielding support of his wife and daughter. He said- that he has a great woman by his side. He added that she is one who always tries to understand him and stand by him.
As for his daughter, he believes that she is the other important woman in his life and is beginning to understand that her dad gets nervous when he does not win a match which is why she always stands by him in need.
At that point in time, Elisabetta Muscarello was still in Italy with their daughter Vittoria even as Conte had moved to London because of his responsibilities with Chelsea. When she finally attended Chelsea v/s Watford, the dam of emotions broke.
Overwhelmed with love showered by the crowds on that day, Elisabetta broke down into tears. Her passion and pride for her husband were visible in her expressions. Her role as a supportive wife has always been her favorite, and her husband has always been very thankful for the same.
The Queen of Privacy
While the lives of the wives and girlfriends of famous sportspeople generally get spent in the limelight, it is not the case with Elisabetta. A devoted wife and a very caring mother, there isn’t much known about her.
There is no information about her schooling or alma mater or if she even has a career. Although she is on social media, all her accounts are set on private, or she is not on them. This even holds true for the little princess Vittoria as she seems to enjoy life away from the prying eyes of the world.
However, Elisabetta is often seen cheering Antonio on along with their adorable baby girl at games and encouraging his wins.
