It’s a good moment for Juventus, but Antonio Conseco will have to wait to see if he’s back in action on the pitch for the first time in six months.
The Bianconeri have had a number of new faces in charge of the first team since Conte was sacked last year and this is the first game he’s been involved in since he arrived in Turin.
“I am really happy, I’m really happy,” Conte said after his team’s 1-0 victory over Sassuolo.
“I think that we have an important opportunity for the future.”
We will see what happens, but I am really optimistic that the results will be good for us.
“This is a good chance for us to have a good look at the team and to try to find a solution, to find something.”
Juventus were without the services of captain Paulo Dybala, who is recovering from a knee injury, but Conte will not miss out on his second game in charge, having signed his first full contract.
“There are some players missing from the squad, which I am happy about,” Consecos said.
“But we will find something out with the squad and then we will make a decision with the players.”
It’s an important moment for us, because we have a chance to try something different and maybe even a few new ideas.
“If we don’t have the right squad, we are not going to be able to play like we can.
So, I am excited for the game, but for the players it’s a big moment for me.”
Sassuolo head coach Paolo Di Canio has said Conte and the squad will not be too happy with the results so far, and that the team will not give up.
“The team has performed well and is very positive,” Di Canios told Tuttosport.
“However, we have had some injuries to players, but we are still able to fight on.”
Antonio is the key man.
He’s a strong, strong man.
I am very happy with what he has done for us.
“Sporting-goods giants Adidas have also been linked with a return for the Italy international.”
Sassoucrosi are interested, they are not a very big team,” Di Cannio said.”
They are a strong team.
We have the same team.
I’m happy with that.
