Antonio Conte: 'Sebastian Giovinco, Mirko Vucinic can be key players'

Juventus boss Antonio Conte believes that Mirko Vucinic and Sebastian Giovinco can be key players in the club's run-in.

Juventus manager Antonio Conte has claimed that Sebastian Giovinco and Mirko Vucinic have the potential to be key players in the club's run-in.

The two attackers have found themselves pushed down the pecking order by the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente at Juve.

However, Conte believes that the pair could provide the spark against teams who set up to defend against the Serie A champions.

"We will find ourselves in situations similar to those at Lyon, where teams are closed and defensive," Conte told reporters.

"We are quite prepared, this is a situation that does not bother me.

"In such situations we have good players for one on one battles, players like Giovinco and Vucinic, even in the tightest games, can be an important weapon to disrupt the plans of opponents."

Juventus's next game is against Livorno on Monday evening.
