Very noticeable in this sense, the repeated references to the importance of the work of Antonio Conte, of sacrifice, the factual reality of things: we’re trying to rebuild a house, from solid foundations, and not cartilaginous as in the past. Clear ideas, daily application, the recovery of a lost discipline for years of “free rein”, empowerment to the “senators”, strong imprinting in club’s press releases of her members.
John Elkann or Andrea Agnelli can also indulge in claims, followed closely by Marotta who can say that he had not brought any top player in Turin (except Pirlo) but at least he did stock up with good players. But they should not try to raise a smokescreen to hide the flaws that still inevitably there are: the team is still incomplete and far from direct competitors. This Antonio Conte knows very well this and repeated: inevitably, being the flag and be the absolute protagonist of this new year gives him a liability multiplied by a thousand. To him and to his players, the burden of being able to withstand the sea at times when, inevitably, will swell. In the meantime, we have to avoid creating false expectations, please.
