Antonio Conte is demanding passion and commitment from his new Juventus squad.
The departing Siena coach will replace Gigi Del Neri in Turin and heâ€™s made his expectations clear in an interview with Tuttosport.
â€śYou have to honour the shirt, the fans and the club,â€ť said Conte.
â€śTherefore I want professionalism and attachment to these colours until the very last moment.
â€śI like to win, obviously, and I canâ€™t stand players who smile at the end of games which have been lost. This infuriates me.
â€śMy players need to leave the pitch with their shirt dripping with sweat after giving their all. These are the requisites needed to do well. There is no compromise.â€ť
Taking charge of Juventus has been a clear objective for the ex-Bari boss given his time in Turin as a player.
â€śNot all ex-Juventus players get this call,â€ť he proudly stated. â€śYou have to earn it, you need ideas and plans.
â€śIâ€™ll do everything in collaboration with President Andrea Agnelli, director Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici.
â€śAndrea Pirlo? Heâ€™ll be one of the two central midfielders, but he will have to play for his place. The starting point will be that we have to keep possession of the ball.â€ť
