Colantuono focused on Atalanta goals

13 May 2012 05:49

Atalanta coach Stefano Colantuono has insisted that ending Juventus' unbeaten run is not his main priority when the two sides clash in the Serie A.

Newly crowned champions Juventus could go the entire league season unbeaten by avoiding defeat on Sunday, but Atalanta have also enjoyed a successful return to the Italian top flight, with Colantuono's team set to finish comfortably in mid-table.

Colantuono is expecting an intense encounter amid the celebratory mood in Turin.

"Let's just play the game, we know it will not be a walk in the park," Colantuono told reporters.

"It will be a celebration, yes, but Juventus still have the Coppa Italia final, and therefore (Juve coach Antonio) Conte will keep everyone grounded.

"For them it will be a first test before their match with Napoli."

Colantuono then turned his attentions to opposite number Conte, who he was full of praise for after leading the Turin side to their first official Serie A title in nine years.

"Conte has a lot to offer. In addition to having technical qualities, he has the right attitude," he said.

"A great team cannot win only because of the quality of the individuals, but also with the hunger from their coach.

"He's won the league title. He's a friend of mine and a coach that I admire.

"We both started from scratch [in coaching], and Conte has been given the honour of joining a great club. Thanks to his work came the Scudetto."
