CHATILLON, July 16, 2012 – No discounts, no respite, no time to stop and reflect on the fact that “ah, yes, we are the champions of Italy in charge …”. Not really, Antonio Conte, does not admit sags and does not want to hear talk of a full stomach nor in the literal sense (the weight of the Bianconeri, in early retirement, was very rigorous) nor in the broader sense: in this case was the … brainwashing, at the beginning of retreat, to be rigorous and dedicated intransigence: the Scudetto, on the chest, must be regarded as a thing of the past when you train and get off the field. Woe to feel satisfied, even if only subconsciously, and end up not express one hundred percent. While these psychological consequences, then, are the basis of great physical work that Juventus coach is doing to the group now available (then will touch to Azzurri): immediately wants to bring to a high level of tension. This is a lesson that Conte, wants to inculcate / pass to the group and that has got to learn years ago in Chatillon, when the then Juventus coach Marcello Lippi, during the retreat, explained to everyone that to Juventus counts only the coming, the Scudetto and if it is the Champions League is even better … Going from the Super Cup, though: this is the first objective, unavoidable.
THE PROGRAM Indispensable, already. So much so that are gradually diminishing the hypothesis of a possible differential treatment, of a return softer with dispensation from the trip to China, starting from 5, 6 August ahead of the final against Napoli in program the 11th in Beijing. Rumour, in fact, the hypothesis that some of Buffon, Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini, Giaccherini, Marchisio, Pirlo, Giovinco could remain in Vinovo, in order to perform the work previously done by their companions, in order not to risk compromising the type of preparation. In reality, however, it seems that in this case the only thing that is liable to impair (even if, for charity, even without the nationals the black and white rose is able to put fear …) is the possibility to prepare at best the Super Cup. Therefore, no calculations of any kind: the nationals return on July 25, will perform the physical tests (yo-yo and company tiring …) while the others – to return from withdrawal – will have one, two days off and besides they prepare for Super Cup , championship, Champions League. Besides, if it is true that Buffon and Co. (Azzurri) begin the withdrawal lagging behind the others, it is also true that until recently sweated and played under the orders of Cesare Prandelli, while others relaxed on holiday. Difficult to estimate large drops in form.
PRIDE In Beijing, therefore, will be the usual law to reign for Conte: notwithstanding the principle of looking down from the neck down, will be fielded the best possible eleven. That defeat, the only defeat of the season in Conte’s era as coach, in Italian cup final against Napoli has not really been digested nor by the coach nor, obviously, by his players and the company. There is great desire to rebalance things, … settle the accounts. Especially considering that among the Juventus-Napoli of Rome and Beijing will report some market frictions (the story Cavani, for example, but also the question Verratti) and questions and answers, related to their choice of date on which to dispute the game. A side dish that will make the wait even more spicy. Do not forget, finally, and not a minor detail, that the challenge of Beijing will be the first official release outside of Antonio Conte, imagine if the technician is willing even to imagine a defeat at the debut …
