Antonio Conte Explains Decision To Quit Bari

The gaffer shocked everyone on Tuesday when he left the Biancorossi recently, but noe he has spoken up...
Former Bari coach Antonio Conte has explained his decision to leave the club before the summer training camp even kicked-off.

Conte mainly blamed the directors at the club for not sharing the same technical ideas he had and for this reason he preferred to quit.

"I wanted to play in Serie A with my ideas: this is Conte," declared the former Juventus player to Ansa.

"The club was aware of what it would mean to wed my project, support my football idea, work with my staff, following exact methods of training.

"Once the trust was not there anymore, I preferred to mutually cancel the contract. There was no more the agreement in the technical project, on which we had agreed just three weeks ago.

"This squad deserves an ambitious project. I will always follow them and I wish them the best of luck."

Just a few weeks ago, Conte was also shortlisted as one of the main candidates for Juventus' bench but he pulled out of the race by agreeing to stay on at Bari.
