Rome, March 20 (IANS) Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon feels their head coach Antonio Conte is one of the best coaches in Europe.
Conte has guided the Turin outfit to Serie A title last season, and has every possibility of repeating it this season. His team also reached the final eight of the Champions League, where they will face Bayern Munich.
Buffon insisted that the 43-year-old will have the team in superb shape as they prepare to face the German club, Xinhua reports.
“The coach does not fear anyone,” he said. “He always puts body and soul into everything. And I think until he believes he has completed his project at Juventus, then we cannot consider any other alternatives.”
“His knowledge of football is superb and he gets all the players to give their maximum. His motivational skills are certainly up there. He does not need any tricks to get the best out of us. When I see coaches of other teams in Europe and I look at ours, I do not believe we are inferior,” he added.
“But if you ask me if we can win the Champions League, I’d tell you that it’s going to be very hard. There are three or four teams, including Bayern, who have better recent records in this competition than we do,” he said.
