Conte is Serie A's most successful coach, says Montella

The Fiorentina boss has voiced his admiration for his Bianconeri counterpart, and is looking forward to this weekend's match between the two sides
Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has taken the time to praise Juventus trainer Antonio Conte ahead of this weekend's Serie A encounter.

The former Siena boss guided the Bianconeri to the Serie A title and the Coppa Italia final last season, and the 38-year-old believes he is arguably the most successful coach in Italy's top tier.

"Conte has created an important mentality at Juventus and that’s not easily done," he was quoted as saying on the Juventus website.

"In the last two years he’s shown himself to be the championship’s most successful boss."

Montella then went on to underline the importance of Saturday's match against Juventus.

"Let’s not forget that this is an important game of football for all of us. We’ll need to display all our quality on the pitch because Juventus are very strong."

Saturday's encounter is scheduled to kick off at 18:00CET.
