Marcello Lippi isn't surprised by the success Juventus are enjoying under Antonio Conte.
Conte, a former player of Lippiâ€™s at Juve, replaced Gigi Del Neri on the Turin hotseat in the summer after leading Siena to promotion.
â€śIâ€™m not surprised,â€ť the 2006 World Cup tactician told Tutto Juve. â€śI have to say that I expected this to happen.
â€śConte has always had great character and a strong personality, ever since he was a player. His determination is also an example to his squad â€“ he drives people forward.â€ť
