Juventus coach Antonio Conte says that he is happy with the start his team have made to the Serie A season.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has told his players to ignore the critics who he believes are trying to "destabalise" his squad.

The Bianconeri recorded their sixth win in seven matches in Serie A this season season by beating AC Milan 3-2 in Turin last night.

Despite being unbeaten and sitting third in the table, some have remarked that the reigning back-to-back Italian champions have not hit full stride yet, but Conte stated that he was happy with the start his team have made.

"When the fixture list was drawn up, everyone said we'd have a really tough start," he told Sky Sport Italia. "I'd have been more than happy with six wins and a draw by this stage.

"We've won for the last two years and this season will be very difficult. History proves that, as the only Juventus side to win three in a row was from 1930-35.

"We all have to understand this – the players, staff, club and fans. We need to be very united and realise the critics will always try to destabilise us and cause problems."

Juve travel to Fiorentina for their next assignment after the international break.
