Antonio Conte leaves Juventus

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 16 July 2014, 09:36

Antonio ConteAntonio Conte has surprisingly quit as manager of Italian giants Juventus after just one day of pre-season training. The 44-year-old led the Old Lady to three consecutive Serie A titles in each of his campaigns at the helm, however he has decided to step down, citing the constant pressure to win as very difficult, while he is also believed to have been frustrated with the Turin club’s apparent refusal to splash the cash.

Conte took charge of Juventus in 2011, and proceeded to lead his former club to the Scudetto in style, by going the whole season unbeaten. Two league titles followed, as did a brace of Supercoppa Italianas, and a host of individual awards.

Despite the Old Lady’s domestic dominance they were unable to make waves in the Champions League, having failed to make it past the quarter-finals during Conte’s time in charge, while they were dumped out of the Europa League semi-finals last season.

Conte’s reign wasn’t without controversy, with the 44-year-old banned for 10 months (reduced to four) in 2013 after he was charged with failing to report attempted match-fixing during his time as coach of Siena. Various reports are now linking him with the Italy vacancy - 1/2 favourite with Paddy Power - with Cesare Prandelli leaving his post at the Azzurri following after suffering an early exit from the 2014 World Cup.
