Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella has praised his Juventus counterpart Antonio Conte ahead of their Serie A encounter on Saturday.
Former Siena coach Conte guided Juve to the Serie A title and the Coppa Italia final last season, Montella believes the former Italy and Juve player is the most successful active coach in Italy’s top tier.
“Conte has created an important mentality at Juventus and that’s not easily done,” he was quoted as saying on the Juventus website.
“In the last two years he’s shown himself to be the championship’s most successful boss.”
Montella then went on to underline the importance of Saturday’s match against Juventus.
“Let’s not forget that this is an important game of football for all of us. We’ll need to display all our quality on the pitch because Juventus are very strong.”
Fiorentina are sixth on the Serie A table, 13 points back from leaders Juve.
