Conte guided Juventus to the Scudetto in his first season in charge last season and fell just short of a domestic double after losing to Napoli in the Coppa Italia final. With another successful campaign undwerway where the Bianconeri are leading the Serie A table by six poitns and have a foot in the quarter finals of the Champions League after a first leg 3-0 away win against Celtic.
Nedved, who played alongside Conte in the title winning Juventus side in the early 2000s, has backed the 43-year-old to follow in the footsteps of former Juve managers Lippi and Capello and seal his name as a great manager.
"Conte's a true star. I really like his way of thinking. He manages to get his humility across and that leads to successful results," the former Juventus star told Sky Sport Italia.
"A comparison with Lippi and Capello? His relative youth means that he hasn't won as much as them as a coach yet, but he'll no doubt catch up with them. He's one of the best.
"To become a top coach you have to be able to get your ideas across to the players, to get your personality across.
"He knows how to do that, and when I go to the stadium and watch Juve play, I really enjoy myself. The side has strength of character, it presses the opposition, the players are always looking to score."
Juventus face Napoli in a crunch top of the table tie this weekend at Stadio San Paolo.
