Conte believes in Pazienza

Michele Pazienza will not be leaving Juventus next month, the midfielder’s agent has underlined.

The 29-year-old only moved to Turin in the summer when he was captured on a Bosman once his Napoli contract had expired.

Pazienza, however, hasn’t been used too heavily by boss Antonio Conte so far which has raised doubts over his future.

“Pazienza will stay at Juventus,” representative Vincenzo D’Ippolito told when asked about the rumours of a possible switch.

“There are no doubts about that at all. Pazienza has the belief of boss Conte.”

Pazienza, linked with a move to former club Udinese, has appeared in eight League games so far this season – but he’s only started one game.

He has totalled just 172 minutes of League action in the Bianconeri jersey to date.
