“Conte Will Remain as Juventus Boss”, Proclaims CEO Marotta
Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has gone on record to insist that his club’s manager Antonio Conte will remain at the club, amid talks that the both parties are set to go their separate ways.
The 44-year-old Conte has been in the thick of media speculation in recent weeks, with the Italian tactician thought to be at odds with his superiors at Juventus over his contract extension with the club.
More news came out that Conte could be on his way out of the Bianconeri camp in the summer, with a shortlist of managers already prepared to replace him – with names including Roberto Mancini and Luciano Spaletti.
But the Bianconeri CEO Marotta has rubbished those claims, telling Eurosport: “Conte is and will remain our head coach. This chapter of the story is already concluded.
“He is the manager of this team because he is very competent. He knows how to motivate the team and prepares well for matches,” Marotta added.
Conte started his managerial career with Italian minnows Arezzo before rising to lead the likes of Bari, Atalanta and Siena. Then, in 2011, he took over as Juventus manager and lead them to two Serie A titles.
