Vialli trusts Conte

Former Juventus player Gianluca Vialli trusts Old Lady Coach Antonio Conte to deliver European success to the club.

On the eve of the Bianconeri’s Europa League semi-final second leg against Benfica, the 49-year-old thinks victory in the competition could provide a springboard to future success in the Champions League.

“I trust Conte and all the older players like Buffon and Pirlo,” Vialli told Uefa.com. “But the other players must improve in Europe, especially in terms of confidence.

“Winning the Europa League could be crucial in helping Juve to start playing better in the Champions League.

“It would certainly be a good way to gain belief and knowledge. It worked for us.”

Vialli was part of the Juventus side to win the 1993 UEFA Cup.
