Conte to move in Stadio Franchi?

There are reports Antonio Conte has moved his seat to the Juventus Channel box at the Stadio Franchi due to security fears.

The Bianconeri Coach is sitting out a 10-month ban in the betting scandal and has been sitting in the stands during away games so far this season.

However, the intense rivalry between Juve and Fiorentina has raised questions over how wise it is to have him seated within reach of the home fans.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Conte had been planning to sit in the VIP box with Juventus President Andrea Agnelli and director general Beppe Marotta.

However, it is reported the practice run with police suggested it was still too ‘open’ a position, as it is surrounded by the regular supporters.

It is now claimed Conte will sit in the boxed-off area where the Juventus Channel commentators will watch the game.

Fiorentina-Juventus kicks off at 19.45 UK time.
