From Nyon to Vinovo

Antonio Conte returns from the Elite Coaches Forum in Switzerland to oversee the Bianconeri’s 4-1 friendly win over Serie D side Santhià

Antonio Conte returned from Nyon to witness the Bianconeri record a 4-1 win in this afternoon’s friendly clash with Serie D outfit Santhià.

The Juventus supremo had started the day by attending the second installment of the Elite Coaches Forum, a two-day summit involving managers from Europe’s finest clubs, but ensured he was back in the dugout to oversee a useful workout against determined opposition.

Goals from Fernando Llorente, Fabio Quagliarella, Matteo Gerbaudo and a Marco Motta penalty secured the success, watched by Pavel Nedved and Gianluca Pessotto from the sidelines.

Conte’s men are expected to shift their focus to tactical work when they return to their preparations tomorrow afternoon at Juventus Center.
