De Canio – former coach of Ternana -, a guest in the studios of "Sportitalia Mercato" on Sportitalia, tells a background linked to the arrival of Conte in Siena in the role of deputy. Compliments for Inter's performance in Barcelona are not missing
SIENA OPERATION – Antonio Conte's coaching career began in Siena , where he was second to the more experienced Gigi De Canio . The story of the "master" brings the tape back to 2005: "I didn't let him fix the Chinois, the one to no collaborator from (laughs, ed). I tell how things went. And it is the pure and sacrosanct truth. I arrived in Siena January 15 to replace Gigi Simoni – who had not been well for several months and in fact coached the vice -, the team was second last in the standings. Giampiero Ventrone had to come with me (former Juventus athletic trainer and former Jiangsu Suning, currently in the staff of Fabio Cannavaro at the Guangzhou Evergrande, ed), but the Sports Director Giorgio Perinetti asked me not to spend money and to keep the staff of Simoni, then after being saved I could have brought my co-workers. I was extremely available. Besides those guys there were good. So we managed to save ourselves. I call Ventrone and ask him to come, because I could bring my own, but in the meantime I tell those kids to find a new possibility, waiting for Ventrone's answer. They didn't take it very well, they were sorry because they had been there for years. But I had my staff. "
THANKS VENTRONE – De Canio was the only one to bring Conte to Siena: «Then Ventrone came with me and told me that Conte was at Juventus but they didn't let him do anything. So he asked me to take him to Siena to be my second: "He has a few years with you and then he wants to go on his own." I have always thought of having quality, which is something that best qualifies everyone's work. I always liked to confront myself with capable people, then one with so many years of Juventus behind him and who had the best coaches, something gave me. Conte came with much humility but with great determination. At the first interview he told me: "But don't just use me to put the pins in, I want to train!" (Laughs, ed). I reassured him by saying that I needed a collaborator, not a puppet. After the first few games he told me he couldn't stay as calm as me on the bench and if he could scream. I established the weekly training session, then I shared the technical-tactical training between me and him. Conte dealt with defense and midfield or midfield and attack alternately ».
NATO COACH – De Canio explains that Conte immediately made him understand what he is made of: «I immediately understood that he could reach these levels because he had this great personality. I had him prepare for the resumption of training with the analysis of the competition played. I looked at him and saw him there, he didn't need me to intervene because he did right, logical and precise analyzes. From his point of view. And if I didn't think something was right, we always talked about it in private. We watched and thought football the same way, knowing we were coaching a team together. I don't believe much in the analysis of those who are better or not. There is general preparation in the Italian coach school. There is no need to run around so much if one plays well or not. The first half of Conte's Inter in Barcelona was spectacular and quality, for example. In these great teams the result is not the valorization of the game, but only the victory ".
