‘Conte will stay at Juventus’

Juventus boss Antonio Conte will not leave Turin at the end of the season for Chelsea or Real Madrid.

The Italian is being linked with both clubs following his stunning spell in charge of the Old Lady so far.

“There are a lot of rumours, but he’ll stay for at least one more season,” former Novara boss Attilio Tesser told Sport Italia.

“He’s a Juve fan, a symbol for the club and he’ll probably stay to try and win the Champions League for them.

“He’s doing some great things on the bench and he did well to get rid of his preferred 4-2-4 in order to pick a system that was more suitable for his players.”

The Old Lady use a 3-5-2 formation, although critics insist that they are lacking a true finisher in attack.

“People say that is the weak link,” Tesser added. “However, the players they have at their disposal are the strong point for Juve because they move a lot and subsequently favour goals by Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal.

“The attackers are functional to the side’s play.”
