Juventus coach Conte explains continued Llorente absence

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has spoken of the continued absence of Fernando Llorente.

The former Athletic Bilbao striker was again missing for their draw at Inter Milan.

"Fernando Llorente is part of the squad, but he was out for a year and that means losing sharpness, so he needs time to get back to full fitness. I won't throw him into the mix before he's ready just to keep the media happy," said Conte.
