Juventus GM Beppe Marotta insists coach Antonio Conte will be in charge next season.
Conte spoke out against the hostile culture of Italian football after victory at Bologna on the weekend.
“It was a post-match comment,” director general Beppe Marotta told Radio Anch’io Lo Sport on Monday.
“Conte is a great Coach and I hope he will remain at Juventus for a long time to come.
“I understand that not everyone is like Alex Ferguson, but I am convinced that we will have him with us for many more years.”
