Repice tells Conte: “At Juve he got pissed off with Pirlo because he opened a sparkling wine after the Scudetto”

The radio commentator of the Rai Francesco Repiceinterviewed by Kiss Kiss Radiotold the Neapolitan broadcaster some anecdotes about Antonio Conte, whom he followed closely during his time with the national team but also when he was coaching Juventus: “In the year in which the Bianconeri outclassed Roma, the goal for him had become the points record and I remember that he got terribly pissed off with Pirlo who had had the audacity to open a bottle of sparkling wine in the locker room after the Scudetto had already been abundantly won. Antonio will do well in Naples, he is a general in the locker room, but he is truly the fortune of the clubs he goes to coach”.

Napoli’s retreat has officially begun
Napoli’s training camp has officially begun in Dimaro, Alto Adige. The Neapolitan club led by Antonio Conte showed up with new signings Rafa Marin and Leonardo Spinazzola, but also with Victor Osimhen, a centre-forward at the centre of the transfer market for whom – so far – no offers have arrived that match De Laurentiis’ request (120-130 million euros). During the presentation, Anthony Conte he had presented the new challenge at the helm of the Neapolitans as follows: “This challenge comes at the right time, on paper very difficult. I arrive at the right age after the right experiences and with great motivation. I believe a lot in destiny, and what lies ahead gives me enthusiasm. It has lit a fire inside me. We must not make proclamations or give illusions, because the fact is that last season there were 40 points from Inter. A significant gap compared to many teams, so we try to build day by day knowing that it will be tough”.
