Conte joined the Old Lady in 2011, but he was contacted by the previous management about becoming the Coach.
"I met with sporting director Alessio Secco and I tried to explain how I would have intended to re-launch Juventus.
"Playing an offensive game, but with ball possession starting from the defence. And then having two wide attackers to surprise our opponents. I indicated players as models: Robben, Lennon and Walcott.
"Diego? He asked for my opinion on him. I said, with frankness, that he was a good player but with Trezeguet, Del Piero, Amauri and Iaquinta in the squad, that 25m could be spent in another manner.
"You all know what happened. If a Coach has a specific way that he plays then he can't be left out when technical decisions are made."
