Siena expect Conte's Juve to win

Siena President Massimo Mezzaroma is confident “Antonio Conte will bring the Scudetto back to Juventus.”

The Coach was at Siena last season and took them to promotion from Serie B before accepting a job offer in Turin.

“I think Conte has already won over the Juve fans. The Bianconeri will fight to the end for the Scudetto and I believe Conte will bring it back to the club,” President Mezzaroma told Radio Radio.

“I hired Conte after his failed spell with Atalanta, but when I met him for the first time, I was impressed by his hunger for victory.

“It was only natural that he would go to Juventus and I did not feel it was right to stop him.”

Conte returned to the Stadio Franchi in Siena for Sunday's Serie A game, emerging with a 1-0 win.

“Yesterday I saw a clinical Juve side ready to fight all the way for the Scudetto along with Napoli. I saw in the eyes of the Juventus players the same spirit that Siena had last year.”
