Antonio Conte will still be sitting on the Juventus bench for the 2013-14 campaign, says former teammate Mark Iuliano.
Conte’s future has been placed into some doubt after he won his second consecutive Scudetto in Turin on Sunday.
“Conte and the directors deserve a special round of applause,” the former defender told Tutto Juve in an interview.
“They have done some exceptional work over these last two years and they deserve recognition for that.
“Conte will stay for sure. He’s put into place an extraordinary project in these years and I don’t think he could leave.
“Anyhow, he’s a Juventino to the core.”
