Antonio Conte, who as Juventus coach started this streak, unprecedented in Italian football, of ‘scudetti’ consecutive wins (no less than 9), is also the one who is about to put an end to it, in this case as Inter coach . This Sunday the Negriazul team can conquer Serie A for the first time since the 2009-10 treble. For this, Inter needs to defeat Crotone this Saturday and that Atalanta does not defeat Sassuolo on Sunday.
It had to be Conte, a longtime Juventus fan, in which he played and coached, who would put an end to the reign of the ‘vecchia signora’. This streak of 9 consecutive ‘scudetti’ began with Conte on the Juventine bench: as coach of the Black and White he got the first 3.
Conte, a midfielder, played for Juventus between 1991 and 2004. He was their coach between 2011 and 2014. On July 15, 2014 he resigned as coach of the Turinese and on August 14 he became Italy’s coach. vecchia signora ‘Conte achieved the’ scudetti ‘of 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14. In addition, twice the Italian Supercoppa (2012 and 2013). In Juve he was relieved by Massimiliano Allegri (who won the ‘scudetti’ of 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19). The ninth Serie A followed by the black and white was with Maurizio Sarri as coach.
Juventus, 13 points behind Inter
With a myth like Andrea Pirlo on his bench, Juventus has not managed to follow the path of success to add the tenth. With 5 games to go, Juventus is 4th, 13 points behind the leader Inter.
Conte acknowledged that “we have 95 percent of the way to the‘ scudetto ’done.” He claimed that he says so because he is not superstitious. “We started talking about 1 percent and the percentage increased while we built something together,” were the words of Conte, who came to Inter in 2019. And in his first season in office, he was one point behind Juventus and Serie A and lost the Europa League final against Sevilla.
Conte asked his players for “hard work, sacrifice and determination” and feels they have confidence in him. Meanwhile, the media Nicolò Barella maintains that losing the final to Sevilla “galvanized us”.
