Lippi full of praise for Conte's Juventus

Marcello Lippi is full of praise for Antonio Conte's Juventus.

Juventus have been top of the table consistently and Guangzhou Evergrande Coach Lippi expects them to stay there.

"Antonio Conte has brought back the 'Juventus spirit' and identity, a concept that people outside the club do not always understand. I am referring to the work ethic and ferocity in searching for results that represent the Juve DNA, but had been slightly lost in recent years.

"The comparisons with my Juve, or those of Fabio Capello and Giovanni Trapattoni, are understandable because we are all united by that culture.

"I'd add Roma to the list of Scudetto contenders, although all of them need to find some consistency rather than these peaks and troughs. I have been really impressed by Fiorentina, who showed it's not always necessary to give plenty of time for a group of new players to gel."
