Emanuele Giaccherini happy to be pinch hitter for Juventus

Juventus midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini is happy in Turin, insists his agent.

Giaccherini enjoys playing for coach Antonio Conte, despite not being guaranteed a first team start.

"He won't leave Turin for as long as Conte is there," agent Furio Valcareggi told calciomercato.it in an interview.

"He's admired by the club and all of his teammates. You can see that by the celebrations after his goal yesterday.

"The estimation that Conte has in him is well known, as is that of Italy boss Cesare Prandelli. He's a very versatile player, who can play in four different positions.

"Coaches fall in love with him."
