Conte slams Juventus chief Agnelli for ignoring his achievements

October 25, 2017 7:34 pm

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has branded Juventus president Andrea Agnelli immature for ignoring him in a speech to shareholders on Tuesday, in which he heaped praise on current coach Massimiliano Allegri.



Agnelli said that Allegri had “carried forward a job which, for many, seemed to have ended,” singling him out after winning three straight Serie A titles and extending the run started under Conte to a league record six consecutive Scudettos.

However, there was no mention of Conte, who led Juve to their first Serie A title in nine years and added a further two before resigning in 2014.

“You never stop getting to know people in life,” Conte told ANSA when asked about Agnelli’s remarks. “Sometimes, all it takes is a bit of recognition, and maturity.”

The Chelsea manager left Juve just weeks into preseason in 2014 due to differences of opinion over the club’s ambitions and transfer strategy.
