I hope Conte will remain at Juventus for many years, says Marotta

The club's CEO is thrilled with the work of the Bianconeri boss and strongly believes he will be at the helm for the foreseeable future
Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta has hailed Antonio Conte's achievements and hopes he will remain with the Serie A champions for many years to come.

Conte arrived at the club in 2011 and was able to lead the Bianconeri to their first league title since 2003 in the 2011-2012 campaign.

And while the reigning Serie A champions currently top the table with a nine-point edge over chasing Napoli, the CEO has expressed his desire for the 43-year-old tactician to prolong his stay at the club.

"Conte is a great coach and I hope he will remain at Juventus for a long time to come," the sporting director told Radio Anch’io Lo Sport.

"I understand that not everyone is like Alex Ferguson, but I am convinced that we will have him with us for many more years.

"We have created a model club and squad. There is a coach who is hungry, as well as the players. Everybody plays with enthusiasm and knowledge of wearing an important jersey."

After the upcoming period of international fixtures, the Old Lady will resume Serie A action with a trip to Inter on March 30.
