Antonio Conte keen to make sure Paul Lambert does not repeat upset 20 years on

Last updated : 17 February 2017



Conte was recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury and watched on as highly-fancied Juventus were beaten 3-1 in the 1996-97 Champions League final by Lambert's Borussia Dortmund, a side which included three former Juve players.

Now the pair are reunited at Molineux on Saturday, when Lambert's Championship Wolves - who have already beaten Stoke and Liverpool in the FA Cup this season - host the Premier League leaders.

"This is one of the three finals that I lost," Conte said.

"We were favourites

I remember that they were the underdog before the game, but they won very well against us.

"He was a good player

I remember very well.

"Revenge is not a good word

Now we started a new career me and Lambert, as coaches.

"I wish for him the best for his career - after this game

For me it will be a great pleasure to shake his hand."
