Dino Zoff believes Italy will be “more solid and like Juventus” with new Coach Antonio Conte at the helm.
Yesterday it was confirmed ex-Juventus boss Conte will take over the Azzurri bench and he’ll hold a Press conference on Tuesday.
“Antonio has the right temperament and drive to raise the atmosphere after the disappointment of the World Cup,” Zoff told Itasportpress.
“He’s the right man to lift the Azzurri colours to the top. He can transform the Nazionale from a frog to a Prince.
“I think he’ll need a little time, but in the long run Italy will become like Juve: solid, determined and a winning team.”
Zoff knows what is needed for this position, as he took Italy to the Euro 2000 Final, losing to a Golden Goal against France.
