Tacchinardi played with Conte for Juve.
"Heâ€™s the right Coach to relaunch Juventus,â€ť Tacchinardi told Radio Sportiva.
â€śI had the good fortune to play alongside Conte and he was a Coach on the field of play. He always had the desire to win.
â€śAntonio knows what winning means. I knew that he would follow his playing career by becoming a great Coach.â€ť
However, Tacchinardi did admit that a lot depends on how Conte deals with expectations in Turin.
â€śWeâ€™ll just have to see how he reacts to the pressure and there will be a lot there,â€ť continued the former Italian international.
â€śHowever, I do think that he has the right personality to take on this challenge even if it wonâ€™t be easy. Heâ€™ll be taking on this side and trying to get it back to winning ways.â€ť
