thumbnail Hello,

The Bianconeri official is confident that the young coach will commit his long-term future to the club after he enjoyed success in his first year in charge

Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that everything is set for coach Antonio Conte to sign a new contract with the club.

The 42-year-old has earned widespread praise for his work at the club after guiding the Bianconeri to their first Scudetto in almost a decade in his first year in charge of the team.

Marotta thinks that extending Conte's contract, which expires in 2013, is just a matter of time after stating last month that such an issue was not a problem.

"Last year, we started an adventure together," he told Rai Sport. "We both want to continue this relationship, so I consider the renewal a formality."

Juventus finished four points clear of second-placed AC Milan in Serie A, and could add the Coppa Italia to the league crown as they tackle Napoli on Sunday.
