TURIN, Italy -- Juventus coach Antonio Conte has signed a new three-year deal with the Serie A champion that will keep him with the club until 2015.

Conte, a former Juventus captain, took over last summer from Luigi Delneri, who failed to take Juventus into the Europa League with a seventh-place finish in the Italian league.

The 42-year-old Conte led Juventus to the league title this season and reached the Italian Cup final.

Juventus was unbeaten in the league, but lost to Napoli in the cup.

Conte previously coached Siena, which he guided to promotion to Serie A in his last season.
