Conte said, "It is important to remember that when I started at Juventus with Bonucci and Chiellini and Barzagli, the defence of Juventus conceded a lot of goals. I remember before I arrived many people told me they are not good these defenders or they are good these defenders.
"I started to work with them and found a great commitment from these players and then through the work I think now we are talking about three great defenders in the world. But I remember when we started, it wasn't so.
"I think David Luiz's qualities are somewhere in the middle between Bonucci and Barzagli. He is good technically and has good personality like Bonucci, and he likes to play football like Bonucci likes to play football, and also I find the good physical potential like Barzagli."
