Soccer: Don't copy Pirlo, warns Conte
'Fine, a month out' unless stretchered off says Juve boss24 September, 18:15
Conte also announced a "heavy" fine and a one-month suspension if a player leaves the field area for the dressing room after being replaced during a game.
"When a player leaves the field, unless it is on a stretcher or with a broken leg, he should stay and watch the game with his teammates," said Conte.
"Otherwise, there will be a heavy fine and the player will stay a month out".
Conte spoke after an incident Sunday when he pulled Pirlo, who then left the field rather than remaining around the bench area for the remainder of the match.
The Italy playmaker was hardly ever substituted during Juve's last two scudetto-winning campaigns but pundits say his form or stamina may have dipped to the extent that Conte has decided to ration his playing time.
