Conte to reward Marchisio with start

Antonio Conte is set to reward Claudio Marchisio’s professionalism by giving him a start against Chievo this weekend.

The Italy international has been on the bench for the last two Juventus matches, with the Coach preferring to go with a midfield triumvirate of Arturo Vidal, Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo.

The 28-year-old has got his head down and kept working however, and Tuttosport claim that the Bianconeri boss will give the midfielder a starting place this weekend as reward for his hard graft.

Several Premier League teams, as well as Ligue 1 outfit Monaco, are said to be interested in signing Marchisio at the end of the season.

But the paper claims that the Juve graduate wants to remain with the club for the remainder of his career.
