Tacchinardi played with Conte for Juve.
"He's the right Coach to relaunch Juventus," Tacchinardi told Radio Sportiva.
"I 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.
"Antonio knows what winning means. I knew that he would follow his playing career by becoming a great Coach."
However, Tacchinardi did admit that a lot depends on how Conte deals with expectations in Turin.
"We'll just have to see how he reacts to the pressure and there will be a lot there," continued the former Italian international.
"However, I do think that he has the right personality to take on this challenge even if it won't be easy. He'll be taking on this side and trying to get it back to winning ways."
