Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs was part of the Manchester United team that played a Juventus with Antonio Conte in September 1996.

Juventus won the match 1-0 in Turin and Giggs has revealed he could tell Conte was a leader after playing against him in 1996.

“Back then, I could tell that Conte was a leader and a very accomplished player,” Giggs told Daily Telegraph.

“I see something of that great Juventus side in his current Chelsea.

“First of all, that Juventus team was built on an excellent defence and that very aggressive pairing of Paolo Montero and Ciro Ferrara, who are different players to the three whom Conte has at Chelsea but equally effective.”
