Giaccherini: Conte helped me land Sunderland move

Sunderland signing Emanuele Giaccherini has paid tribute to Juventus coach Antonio Conte.

The winger says Conte helped him make the move.

"I thank Coach Conte who gave me the opportunity to emerge in these two years, to get to where I have arrived," the versatile midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.

"I think most of the credit for that belongs to him. I thank him and I'll do that over the telephone too."
