Juventus coach Conte satisfied with Europa League win

Juventus coach Antonio Conte was satisfied with their Europa League win over Trabzonspor. Juve won 2-0, with Dani Osvaldo scoring his first goal for the club.

"The 2-0 is certainly a good result going into the second leg," the Coach told Sport Mediaset.

"We had several scoring opportunities, but either we were imprecise or their goalkeeper did well. Trabzonspor had finished ahead of Lazio in the group phase, so were not to be underestimated.

"We did well, but there is still another game to play. We got too stretched out in the second half when pushing hard for another goal, risking something at the back by fielding three strikers.

"I needed a response and I got it on the field, because if we want to carry on in two competitions then we need everyone," continued Conte.

"I looked at the fixture list and, in the most optimistic reading, we'd play 16 games in 52 days. That would destroy players if I always used the same ones. We have to involve the entire squad and try to help those who haven't played as much get their match fitness.

"I don't know any other way of going forward."
