Chiellini: Conte the architect of Juventus success

The Italy international has nothing but praise for his coach and has stressed that the Bianconeri deserve their domestic success
Giorgio Chiellini has hailed Antonio Conte's role in Juventus' Serie A success this season as he feels the head coach is the brain behind their Scudetto win.

The Turin giants comfortably beat second-placed Napoli to the title to make it two consecutive Scudetti and Chiellini hopes that Juventus can continue to challenge for silverware with Conte at the helm.

"We’re in the thick of our cycle and Conte’s the main architect. We want to develop together and continue following his lead," Chiellini was quoted as saying on the official Juventus website.

The defender then went on to voice his opinion that Juve fully deserve their Serie A title as they never lost sight of their goal.

"The reason why we’ve sealed this Scudetto title so early is because we’ve never given up over the course of the campaign.

"We never lost sight of our objective. The defeat against Inter [in November] was a slip-up that brought us back down to earth and after a sticky patch in January we set off again. We deserve this title."

Juventus take on Sampdoria on May 19 in their final game of the 2012-13 campaign.
