Conte deserves credit for Juventus success, says Llorente

The Spain international has voiced his delight with the Bianconeri's fine 2013-14 campaign and has praised the club's head coach for his good work
Fernando Llorente has highlighted coach Antonio Conte as the main factor in Juventus' record breaking Serie A campaign.

The Turin giants finished ahead of Roma and Napoli to win their third consecutive league title, collecting 102 points to set a new Serie A record, and Llorente has stressed that Conte deserves credit for his fine work.

"I don’t know whether 102 points will ever be matched. It’s a spectacular achievement and we’re all very happy. It’s been a fantastic year," Llorente told Sky Sport Italia.

"It’s credit to the boss. We’ve kept up the same mentality since the very beginning, without ever easing off. That’s the secret to success.

"Maintaining concentration was the hardest thing. After securing the title it hasn’t been easy to keep on winning the games that remained. But now we’ve made history with 102 points."

Llorente netted 16 goals in 34 Serie A appearances in his first season at Juve after joining them from Athletic Bilbao last summer.
