Conte shrugs off tough season start for Juventus

Juventus coach Antonio Conte isn't bothered by their tough season start.

Juve will open their title defence at Sampdoria, before entertaining Lazio and then travelling to Inter in their first three games.

"In a competition like Serie A, where every team is extremely tactically prepared, commenting on the fixture list has little meaning," Conte told

"When you cross the white line you mustn't look at the name of the opposition, because you can run into difficulties against any side if you don't face them with both respect and thorough preparation."
