Juventus FC's veteran midfield player Antonio Conte has announced that he will leave the club after 13 seasons.
Conte joined Juventus in 1991 from hometown club US Lecce. He went on to claim Serie A titles in 1994/95, 1996/97, 1997/98, 2001/02 and 2002/03. He also won the UEFA Champions League in 1995/96 and the UEFA Cup in 1992/93, in addition to lifting the UEFA Super Cup, Italian Cup and European/South American Cup.
"I still haven't decided if I will stop playing or carry on with another club," he said. "I'm a bit confused about my future, however this year or next year I will start coaching. I leave Juve after winning many trophies but now is the time for them to start again with new players."
Conte made his international debut in 1994 against Finland and appeared twice at the FIFA World Cup later that year. He missed out on selection for both EURO '96™ and the 1998 World Cup but played at UEFA EURO 2000™, scoring Italy's first goal in the Low Countries.
