Buffon says Juventus players desperate to perform for Conte

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon says the players are fully behind coach Antonio Conte.

Conte replaced Luigi Del Neri this summer and Buffon knows all about the tactician given that they were former teammates in Turin.

"We'll bring happiness not just to the fans and directors, but also our Coach, who was a cherished teammate," Buffon stated.

"Alessandro Del Piero and I thought extremely highly of him when we played together, for the example that he set on the pitch. Conte being here provides another boost."
