Marcello Lippi has welcomed the appointment of Antonio Conte as new Juventus coach.

Conte has been handed a two-year contract by the outfit after leading Siena to Serie A promotion this season.

“Conte is the right choice,” Lippi said. “He strongly represents Juventus-ness, as a former player and a captain.

“He was a protagonist of a Juventus side which was a protagonist. He knows what to do and how to behave. He was a leader on the pitch, he’ll be one on the bench too.
