Antonio Conte could barely contain his delight after guiding the Bianconeri to a magnificent 4-0 Super Cup success over Lazio on an unforgettable night at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.
The 44-year-old saw his half-time team talk pay off to devastating effect as his men rifled three goals in four second half minutes to stun a wounded Lazio.
Speaking shortly after the final whistle, Conte said: “It was a one-off encounter and these are the games in which history is made. I know my lads and knew we’d face the clash with the right attitude.
“We prepared extremely well, losing just once against LA Galaxy, given that the other games in America went to penalties. Now we still need to shake off the workload, but we were deserved winners this evening and I’m very happy.”
