Fabio Capello has admitted that Antonio Conte’s Juventus team is better than his own vintage.
The veteran tactician was in charge of the Old Lady between 2004 and 2006, where they won the two Scudetti that were eventually stripped thanks to the Calciopoli scandal.
But the Russia boss has conceded that Conte’s Bianconeri is one of the strongest in the club’s history.
“Conte is the best Coach in Italy,” he told Tuttosport. “He has demonstrated that for the past few years.
“Conte has worked hard to recreate that winning mentality that left the team a few years back.
“Juve’s game is entirely down to Conte. Of course, in Europe there is more competition, but I think Antonio can aspire to dominate Europe as well.
“I look at the data, the facts, the statistics – numbers don’t lie. And Conte’s Juve are better than mine.
“Should they beat Roma their advantage over the Giallorossi would rise to eight points, and that would be difficult to overcome.
“My heart is divided in half – I had unforgettable times in Rome and Turin.”
