Novellino praises modern Juve

Former Torino boss Walter Novellino has applauded the work of Antonio Conte at Italian giants Juventus.

Conte joined the Turin side in the summer from little Siena and the team were crowned as Winter Champions on Saturday night.

Currently unbeaten this term, Novellino has praised Conte for transforming an outfit that finished seventh over the last two seasons.

“At this moment in time Juventus are the most modern side in Italian football,” the ex-Sampdoria man told Sky Sport Italia.

“They are helped by their fantastic new stadium, but they are also proving their value during their away games.”

The Old Lady have collected 21 points at home in Serie A so far this season and 20 away from Turin.
