Agnelli: Inter Milan boss Conte a symbol of Juventus

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli insists he's happy with the work of coach Maurizio Sarri.

Agnelli is happy seeing former coach Antonio Conte's Inter Milan doing so well.

“We wanted Maurizio Sarri and we took Sarri," Agnelli said. “Conte is a symbol of Juventus; he has won multiple Scudetti and the Champions League.

“Conte is Juventus from this point of view. We have a peaceful relationship with him, but we are professional.

“That he took on the challenge of bringing ambitious Inter back to the winners' circle, rubbing heads with [Inter President] Steven Zhang, who is a person I know and respect, is something that fascinates me."
