Emotional Massimiliano Allegri shifts focus to Champions League


Coach Massimiliano Allegri says there is no time to celebrate the Scudetto as Juventus look forward to facing Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Arturo Vidal's seventh goal of the season was enough for the Bianconeri to edge past Sampdoria on Saturday afternoon and the Italian was full of praise for his players after the final whistle.

"Winning the title for a fourth consecutive time is always a great achievement," Allegri told Mediaset.

"The club, the lads and all those who work at the club deserve a share of the title, we did well [tonight] without focusing too much on Tuesday's game [against Real Madrid].

"Nobody expected us to reach so far in the Champions League but we should now try to reach the final.

"The season has been a hybrid of emotions so far, we started with many injured players but still managed to win our first six games of the season.

"This group includes important players, all eager to win and reach the end of competitions.

"We now shift our focus to the Champions League, an intense competition. We respect Real Madrid, they are quality so we have to be close to perfection and doing well up front because you can't expect a 0-0 against them."
