Conte 'can't wait' for Juve debut

Antonio Conte is already looking forward to Juventus inaugurating their new stadium against Parma. “I can't wait.”

The Bianconeri will unveil their arena, the first in Italy to be owned by a club rather than the local council, on the weekend of September 11.

“It's true the trips to Lecce and Siena have special meaning for me due to my history, but more than any other I am looking forward to the game with Parma. In Week 2 it will be the first in our new stadium. I can't wait.

“I think the fixture list is well balanced, even if we have five truly very difficult games from Week 9 to 13, taking on Fiorentina, Inter, Napoli, Palermo and Lazio,” noted the Coach.

The opening match for the Bianconeri is at the Stadio Friuli against high-flying Udinese.

“It'll be anything but an easy start, because we're facing a team that is by now European class.”
