Gianluigi Buffon hails Antonio Conte as the best coach he has worked with in his entire career.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has said that Antonio Conte is the best coach he has played under in his entire career.

The Italian tactician led the Bianconeri to their second successive Serie A title success with a 1-0 home win against Palermo on Sunday.

"I don't want to be boring but I think every coach has had a decisive impact on my career development," Buffon told FIFA.com.

"I have to say, though, that Antonio Conte is definitely the best coach I've worked with.

"In a short space of time he's managed to breathe new life into a team that in two seasons could do no better than seventh place. And he was a winner straightaway."

Buffon has been at Juventus since 2001 and has won the Scudetto four times.
