Since Antonio Conte’s appointment as the coach of Juventus on May 22 of 2011, the Italian coach has guided the club to consecutive Serie A title wins and the current campaign has been no different but his contract with Juventus expires in a few months and the CEO of Juventus, Giuseppe Marotta stated that there will not be any talks or meetings until the end of the current season.
“Juventus are delighted with the work done by Conte, he has a contract with us and he is the leader of our group. We have already spoken regarding this matter and we will discuss this issue at the end of the season.” Giuseppe Marotta said.
Antonio Conte is another high profile candidate of being the successor of David Moyes in Manchester United although Louis van Gaal still remains being the favorite on taking the job in the Premiere League club.
Sebastian Giovinco is not a consistent performer for Juventus and has only made a limited number of appearances for Antonio Conte as the coach prefers using other attacking options such as: Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente but Conte has backed Giovinco and stated that he should be seriously taken into consideration for the 2014 World Cup.
“Giovinco is doing really well, as he is gaining confidence in his own abilities. It’s what I always told him to do. He’s so good at taking men on and can be decisive.I hope he can continue like this to the end of the season, because he still has a chance of going to the World Cup. Someone like Giovinco would certainly be of use to Cesare Prandelli.” Conte stated.
Giovinco was not featured in Italy’s latest friendly match against Spain as well as their World Cup Qualifying encounter when battling against Armenia.
