Pessotto: Conte is a true champion

Juventus legend Gianluca Pessotto has praised current Coach Antonio Conte, calling him 'a champion'.

The 42-year-old, who played over 200 games for the Bianconeri, has admitted that his fellow teammate is as good a tactician as he was a player.

“I was hoping that Antonio could become the same sort of manager as he was a player,” he told Sky Sport. “And he certainly has – he has it all.

“Antonio has a winning mentality and great experience – these are the qualities that he had on the field.

“All that sweat has helped him become a true champion, as a Coach and a player.”
