Conte stays at Juventus

Juventus 2

Juventus have confirmed that coach Antonio Conte will be in charge for the 2014-15 season, although he hasn't signed a contract extension.

There's a relieved atmosphere around Juventus as the Bianconeri have confirmed that Antonio Conte will still be in the hot seat next season.

The Old Lady were completely dominant in Serie A, winning the title at a canter and recording a record points total of 102.

But the jubilation was tarnished slightly by doubts over the future of boss Conte, who indicated he may leave if not given adequate resources to strengthen the squad over the summer.

Conte had been quizzed on Juventus' failure to secure European silverware and responded with frustration, stressing that 'you can't eat in a 100-Euro restaurant for 10 Euros.'

After he was linked with several potential new jobs including AC Milan and Tottenham, Juventus held decisive talks with Conte yesterday to persuade him to stay on.

And those talks were successful as the club announced on its official Twitter feed that Conte would be in charge next season.



The news will have prompted many sighs of relief from Juventus fans, but Conte has still not committed his long-term future to the club, who are trying to persuade him to sign a new contract beyond 2015 when his current deal expires.

Conte's willingness to stay on suggests that Juventus are ready to splash the cash this summer and will attempt to hold on to their major assets such as Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
