Pavel Nedved is desperate to get Antonio Conte back at Juventus - Gold

Alasdair Gold has told his YouTube channel that he understands that Pavel Nedved has been desperate to get Antonio Conte back to Juventus amid speculation the Old Lady want the Tottenham boss should they look to replace Massimiliano Allegri.

Juve have made an extremely underwhelming start to the season. They have only won two of their opening seven games in Serie A and sit eighth in the table.

With that, there is speculation that Allegri could be replaced. And the man being linked with a potential return to Turin is Conte.

Obviously, Tottenham fans are getting used to seeing Conte linked with other clubs. Reports in the summer suggested that he had given the green light to a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Of course, nothing came of those links. But it does highlight how Conte’s situation at Tottenham could prove to be precarious depending on what jobs come available and where Spurs are.

Conte does have history with Juve, having really launched his career as an elite manager with the club.

Gold does not expect the Italian to put the rumours to bed publicly. And he does believe that there is still a lot of love for Conte. However, he noted that there are plenty of complications which may make a return unlikely.

“We’ve seen all the Juventus links again this week. Conte’s going to get linked here, there and everywhere. He will not slap down those links. Of course he won’t. He wants to keep the pressure on Tottenham and what they do,” he told his YouTube channel.

“The Juventus links are fascinating because, from what I understand, I think Pavel Nedved has always been desperate to have him back at Juventus. But I think there was a massive falling out with Agnelli, the chairman. I think it goes all the way back to when Conte walked out on them a day into pre-season because he wasn’t happy.”

Juve are not currently the force they once were. The likes of Inter and AC Milan have both won the Scudetto since the club’s last title win.

Obviously, Conte has that connection with Juventus. He made 420 appearances for the club and managed them to three league title wins.

But Tottenham have shown that they are prepared to do a lot to keep him happy. And they are moving in the right direction. So Spurs can surely be fairly confident that they will keep Conte should the Juventus position become available anytime soon.
