The two teams meet tomorrow.
“What Conte gave me was hunger, the desire to never give in, the mentality that allows you to go beyond pain to reach your objectives," Bonucci told Sky Sport Italia.
“He drilled that into us from the first day. Conte was perfect for that Juventus: he needed a chance with a big club and we had to get back to being great after Calciopoli. We needed someone like him, who could make us understand what it meant to wear that jersey.
“After three top years together, our paths separated and we continued the growth process elsewhere, but maintained a relationship."
