Conte was mentioned for the Juve job after serving 13 years at the Bianconeri as a player.
“I spent 13 years of my life at Juve and you don’t forget those easily,” said Conte.
“So many seasons in Turin forge an indelible mark on you. However, I want to do well at Atalanta and work with this club for a long time to come.”
That almost wasn’t the case, as Ciro Ferrara confirmed Conte had talks for the Juventus job in the summer.
“Once and for all I want to state I only had an informal chat and nothing more. I wish Ferrara, a man with whom I shared many great results, a world of success both in present and future.”
