Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson recently announced his retirement from the sport after more than 40 years in charge of different clubs.
Even though he has managed a couple of Scottish clubs, Ferguson is known for being in charge of United for more than 25 years. There have been comparisons of Juventus manager Antonio Conte with the Scot, but the Italian has straightaway rejected the comparisons by saying that he is only starting in his career. After more than a decade without any success, Conte managed to lead Juventus to successive league titles.
The Italian champions Juventus have managed to complete the signing of the former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka on a six-month deal from the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua. The former French international moved to the Chinese league more than a year ago, but he has been unhappy recently.
The Juventus manager Antonio Conte has managed to remarkably overturn the fortunes of the Italian giants, who looked like being available to recover from the match fixing scandal of 2006. They managed to win the title after staying undefeated throughout the whole of last season.
The Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has said that he is extremely confident that the team can retain the Italian Serie A title this season due to the fact that they have the winning mentality.

The Chilean midfielder has been linked with a move to some of the biggest clubs in the world including Bayern Munich and Manchester City in the last few weeks.
However, the 25-year-old has said that he is extremely happy at his club Juventus. Arturo Vidal has been one of the standout defensive midfielders in Europe over the last couple of seasons. He has even managed to add the attacking side of the game as well.
The former Italian and Juventus manager Marcello Lippi has said that he is very realistic about the chances of Juventus winning the European title this season, even if they manage to sign long-term tagert Luis Suarez. The former Juventus manager has praised the side for being able to go undefeated throughout the entire season and win the Italian championship.
The former AC Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso has said that AC Milan should work extremely hard if they are to regain the title from the hands of Juventus this season. Gennaro Gattuso recently left the club after nine years of service at the San Siro.
