Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon has hailed the quality of coach Antonio Conte.

Conte is preparing the Serie A leaders for a Champions League quarterfinal against Bayern Munich.

“The Coach does not fear anyone,” he told a Press conference. “He always puts body and soul into everything.

“And I think until he believes he has completed his project at Juventus, then we cannot consider any other alternatives.

“His knowledge of football is superb and he gets all the players to give their maximum. His motivational skills are certainly up there. He does not need any tricks to get the best out of us.

“When I see Coaches of other teams in Europe and I look at ours, I do not believe we are inferior.

“But if you ask me if we can win the Champions League, I'd tell you that it's going to be very hard.

“There are three of four teams, including Bayern, who have better recent records in this competition that we do.”
