Giorgio Chiellini has hailed Antonio Conte's role in Juventus' Serie A success this season as he feels the head coach is the brain behind the club's Scudetto win.
The Turin giants comfortably beat second-placed Napoli to the title to make it two consecutive Scudetti and Chiellini hopes that Juventus can continue to challenge for silverware with Conte at the helm.
"We’re in the thick of our cycle and Conte’s the main architect. We want to develop together and continue following his lead," Chiellini was quoted as saying on the official Juventus website.
The defender then went on to voice his opinion that Juve fully deserve its Serie A title as it never lost sight of its goal.
"The reason why we’ve sealed this Scudetto title so early is because we’ve never given up over the course of the campaign," Chiellini said.
"We never lost sight of our objective. The defeat against Inter [in November] was a slip-up that brought us back down to earth and after a sticky patch in January we set off again. We deserve this title."
Juventus takes on Sampdoria on May 19 in its final game of the 2012-13 campaign.
