Juve fans sign a petition calling for Conte’s ‘star’ in stadium to be revoked

Over 15,000 Juventus fans have signed a petition calling for Antonio Conte’s ‘star’ in the stadium to be revoked and handed to Claudio Marchisio.

The call had already started the moment Conte took the Inter job, but has gained momentum ahead of tomorrow night’s Derby d’Italia at San Siro.

Conte represented Juve in their most successful periods as both player and Coach, but his decision to join arch-rivals Inter is considered a ‘betrayal’ by those who signed the petition.

They want the star on the Walk of Fame removed and instead handed to Marchisio, who just announced his retirement this week.

However, Tuttosport note this will not happen because President Andrea Agnelli has imposed a veto on removing Conte’s star.

There are 50 stars in total around the Allianz Juventus Stadium, representing the names of those who contributed to the club’s history.
