Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia believes new Juventus coach Antonio Conte will bring out the best in Leonardo Bonucci.

Bonucci has been omitted from the latest Azzurri squad after a tough ending to the season that saw him dropped from the Juve line-up.

"I'm certain that he'll be able to get back to his high levels and be back in the Azzurri squad thanks to Conte," Ranocchia said of his former Bari teammate.

"Conte, who I had at Arezzo and Bari, is a Coach who pays close attention to the defensive side of the game.

"Bonucci will improve as a player with him."
