Antonio Conte proud of Juventus

Juventus manger Antonio Conte says that his team's performance against Lazio proved why they are the Serie A leaders.

Juventus manger Antonio Conte has said that his team deserved to win their Serie A match against Lazio.

The two sides shared a 1-1 draw, despite Juve playing most of the match with 10 men.

"We wanted to win, both with 11 men and with 10. What we try to drill into the players is a winning mentality and these lads know full well every game must be played to win, even when the goalkeeper is sent off after 25 minutes," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"I think that in difficult times the men emerge as well as the players, which is what happened today. We picked up a point and I think the team proved again tonight why they are top of the table.

"Juventus never gave in, continued to play football and trying to win the game despite going down to 10 men. It's a shame we interrupt the 12 consecutive Serie A victories, but these things happen and Lazio deserve credit for their performance."

Juventus are currently six points clear of second-placed Roma at the top of the Serie A table.
