Fabio Capello insists he hasn't aimed criticism at Juventus coach Antonio Conte.
The pair have traded insults in the press this past week.
‚ÄúConte is doing some very good things and proving all his worth,‚ÄĚ Capello told Sky Sport Italia.
‚ÄúEveryone controls the group in the way they see best. I never said I was against the decisions he made. I was just asked a question about annulling the day off and replied I was against punitive methods. I don‚Äôt like people being punished for doing something wrong. I‚Äôve never done that.
‚ÄúHaving said that, every Coach has the right to do what he things is best and knows his own players well. It is very difficult to understand the decisions of other Coaches if you don‚Äôt know what‚Äôs going on behind closed doors.
‚ÄúI only said that I never punished a team. I didn‚Äôt say I was against Conte‚Äôs decision, nor do I have anything against him.‚ÄĚ
