Conte: 'It's not over yet'

Antonio Conte insists “the season isn’t over” after Juventus went seven points clear and warns “we won’t sign any top player.”

The Bianconeri crushed Atalanta 3-0 in the opening half-hour, a task then made easier by Thomas Manfredini’s dismissal.

“It went well and was a great performance. We had the right approach and it wasn’t easy against a side like Atalanta,” said Conte.

“The season isn’t over yet. We’re still going and it’s never simple to confirm a victory a year later. We try to prove ourselves through good football and organisation.

“At the end of the day we’ll see where we are.”

The January transfer window opens soon and newspapers claim a deal is close for Didier Drogba.

“I know full well that this is a critical moment on an economic level for many clubs. We won’t sign any top player, because we are not in a position to do so. Neither are the other sides in Serie A.”
