Conte slaughters Capello over Juventus criticism

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has slammed Russia coach Fabio Capello. Capello said this week that the Bianconeri had no competition in Serie A and criticised Conte's decision to scrap the team's day off after a 2-2 draw with Verona.

"When a guru of football speaks, we ought to just kneel down and say 'Yessir!'" declared Conte.

"Capello talked about a lot of things. In his view we are playing an amateur tournament. Since I've been here he likes to talk about Juventus a lot and stick his nose in. Perhaps our statistics and records annoy him.

"He ought to focus more on trying to get Russia past the first round at the World Cup. If I were in his position, I wouldn't have said anything. Who is Capello to say I did something wrong?"
