President Andrea Agnelli wrote an open letter to Antonio Conte. “Juventus must continue their journey.”
The Coach surprisingly announced this evening in a video message on the club website that he had terminated his contract by mutual consent.
“Dear Antonio, you were a great leader for our lads and this news leaves me enormously sad,” wrote Agnelli in an open letter on the Juventus website.
“I think of the three years we spent together, three years that brought us to write history with this club: three consecutive Scudetti, two Italian Super Cups, but above all exponential growth.
“Faced with sentiments and personal reasons, even a President has to take a step back. Only two months have passed since the last great victory and Juventus must continue their journey.
“We start again from scratch, from 0 points in the table, like the others, and 0 victories. But this club is gifted today with a young, ready and cohesive group of directors who over the years have been able to find the ambition and determination to achieve any target.
“Juventus begin again from a very talented and professional group of athletes, who will be at the disposal of the new Coach in order to continue writing the present and the future.
“You also contributed to the history of the Bianconeri colours and, whatever decision you make, the news of a Juve victory will always make you smile.
“Beppe, Fabio, Pavel and I, along with all the players, directors and employees, will continue to work day and night for what the Juventus fans deserve and what Juventus deserve.
“Those who work here will know they must be up to the task of this great club in every minute.
“Thank you for everything Antonio. All the way to the end...
