Juventus coach Antonio Conte has assured fans he wants to stay in Turin.

Yesterday Conte was in Catanzaro to receive an award and saw a large banner that read: 'Ferguson-Manchester United = Conte-Juventus.'

"I will try," he replied from the stage. "I will try to remain for all that time to achieve many victories and get closer to such an extraordinary and legendary personality as Sir Alex Ferguson.

"When my journey with Juventus is finished, then I will want to challenge myself abroad, but I hope that day is a long way away.

"The Juventus fans don't need to show me their affection. I already know how much they care for me and the team."
