Juventus sports chief Alessio Secco says it's no surprise Ciro Ferrara and Antonio Conte are now both successful coaches.

Conte's Atalanta lost 5-2 to Juve yesterday, the first game against his former club since missing out on the top job to Ferrara.

Secco said: "Surely they were two predestined for what they did at Juventus as players, two players who were already showing a glimpse of their qualities, so I'm not surprised that today they are two coaches, even though young, with great potential.

"Yes, Conte was in contention, but it is fair to conclude the matter as they are domestic issues between us, so I do not think it's right to look back on those moments."
