Juventus striker Matri: Conte has improved me

Juventus striker Alessandro Matri is full of praise for coach Antonio Conte.

Matri says he's a better player for working with Conte.

"The style of football that the Coach adopts has to involve the entire team," Matri told Mediaset Premium.

"We practice various different ideas during the week and the results are excellent. The organisation is paying off, combined with athletic, technical and tactical work that we do every day.

"You have to work really hard to apply Conte's ideas, but this helps you to stay in good shape and allows players to improve. Personally I have changed my style of football to settle in better to these ideas and I have grown, both tactically and in terms of character."
