Pirlo: 'Credit to Conte'

Andrea Pirlo said “much of the credit” goes to Antonio Conte for a record-breaking 102-point Juventus run.

“We beat every record, amassed 102 points and it will be almost impossible for anyone to repeat that.

“This was an extraordinary campaign and crowned by this victory,” Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia after a 3-0 win over Cagliari.

The entire second half was dominated by supporters waving banners calling for their Coach to remain.

“It was a lovely show of affection from the crowd towards Conte and we hope it can all be resolved over the next few days.

“Much of the credit for these trophies goes to Conte, as he picked up a team fresh from finishing seventh twice and won three Scudetti in a row.”

This is a new top five European League record of 102 points.

They are also the first Serie A side to end a campaign with a perfect home record.
