Brienza happy with Conte return

Palermo midfielder Franco Brienza has claimed he is happy to see Juventus boss Antonio Conte return the bench.

The two sides meet on Sunday, with the Bianconeri Coach making his first appearance in the dugout since his suspension in the summer.

And the 33-year-old has insisted he is pleased for the tactician, as well as admitting that it will be a tough test this weekend.

“Conte? I am happy for his return to the bench,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “He is a honest and sincere person.

“It will be a tricky game with a lot of dangers.

“But we will have to try our best to get a positive result against the League leaders. The Bianconeri are proving to be very strong.”
