Antonio Conte feels his Juventus are “unlike any other” and after the Scudetto party is looking forward to a vacation.
The Serie A trophy was presented to the team at the Juventus Stadium this evening after their 1-1 draw with Cagliari.
“It is all so wonderful, the fact we achieved this success and followed up the title from last season is all stupendous,” said Conte.
“There’s one more game to go, then we will go off to enjoy our deserved vacation, seeing as for two years we have been working hard. We need to do well in order to rest properly, because it takes a lot of energy to reach these targets.”
Giorgio Chiellini called Conte “the architect” of their success story, but the Coach has a different viewpoint.
“The lads have been the protagonists throughout these two years, as they always had their minds on the job and trained the best way possible. Can we win again? It’ll be very tough, as we need to work hard and never feel sated. It was difficult for us to follow the Scudetto up this year.
“The player I was most impressed by was Paul Pogba, as don’t forget last year he was in the Manchester United youth team and never really played.”
If they can also challenge in the Champions League, then this Juve could be considered among the top all-time Bianconeri line-ups.
“I don’t think this Juventus resembles any of the previous sides. In terms of grit and determination it can be likened to Marcello Lippi’s, but for the ideas and style of football I think it is unlike any other.”
