Antonio Conte warned Juventus are “building something important,” so tomorrow’s Trofeo TIM against Inter and Milan is bad timing.
The three teams will face off on Saturday evening in a mini-tournament at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari.
“These are relatively tough tests, because we’ve only been in training for a few days,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“It’s a good test to evaluate the progress of the group, but we are working on both tactical and athletic aspects at the moment.
“We are building something important, but in any case still want to do well in this shop window tournament.”
Italy’s road to the Euro 2012 Final means many senior stars are still on their summer vacation.
“It is inevitable there will be squad rotation, as we have only 11-12 real first team players, while the rest of the group is made up of youngsters.”
