Juventus coach Conte hands himself self-imposed media ban

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has handed himself a media ban for today's clash with Genoa.

He is suspended after his red card for dissent against Bologna on Wednesday evening and opted against holding today’s traditional press conference.

“Antonio always behaved correctly with referees and assistants, so the dismissal was unjust,” said No2 Angelo Alessio.

“We were there and we know how things went. He’s very upset at this one-match ban and I hope in future a similar situation does not happen again.

“We will face Genoa the same way we did the other teams, with that determination and hunger to get a result. This side has a team spirit constructed through eight months of work and tomorrow we’ll be even angrier about this situation, so will double our efforts.”
