Tottenham boss Conte ‘ideal for Juventus’ says former teammate

Former Juventus defender Sergio Porrini believes his former teammate Antonio Conte would be ‘ideal’ for the Old Lady.

The Bianconeri have had a tough start to the season as they risk being eliminated from the Champions League group stage and are already ten points behind table leaders Napoli.

President Andrea Agnelli has confirmed his trust in Massimiliano Allegri, who ended the first trophyless campaign at the club in 11 years last term.

Allegri is contracted until 2025 at the Allianz Stadium, but his future in Turin will be in doubt if he fails to win at least one trophy this season.

“Everyone thought Max was the right man, but when things do not go the right way, then the coach is righty questioned,” former Juventus defender Porrini told Bianconeranews.

“I think he’s had disagreements with some players, but I don’t think there is a coach who can replace him immediately.”

What if Juventus don’t win a trophy this season? Would Conte be the right man?

“Conte always is an ideal solution,” said Porrini, who spent four years in Turin with the current Tottenham boss.

“Everywhere he goes, things change in a positive way. His ideas motivate every team and he is showing that at Tottenham.

The other name could be Zidane, but I hope Allegri will get over this. I refuse to think that such a smart coach is unable to turn things around.”

Conte’s contract in North London runs out in 2023, but the Italian tactician has recently claimed that he is happy at the club, branding as ‘disrespectful’ rumours of a potential return to Juventus.
