Barzagli: Juventus will be boosted by Conte return

Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli is convinced of an instant lift from coach Antonio Conte's return to the dugout.

Conte is set to return next weekend from his alleged betting ban and the centre-back is ready to welcome him back with open arms.

"It is not easy to face so many games without a Coach with his temperament, someone who knows how to drag us along," Barzagli told the Corriere dello Sport.

"[Assistants] Massimo Carrera and Angelo Alessio are good, but the Coach is something completely different."
