Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has refused to comment on Jose Mourinho's remarks that he spent all summer publicly talking about Chelsea players.
The Italian admitted last month that he admires midfielders Oscar and Ramires and that he wanted to add one of them to his squad.
But speaking to the media on Saturday afternoon ahead of tomorrow's home game against Udinese, Allegri opted not to reply to the Portuguese.
"Let's start with the first question," Allegri is quoted as saying by TuttoJuve.com when asked to choose a rival for the season and to also reply to Jose Mourinho.
"Our season starts tomorrow, there are many games to play, 38 in the Serie A, 6 in the Champions League and for now, one in the Italian Cup.
"So at the moment let's talk about this.
"As for choosing a rival, I would first of all say Udinese, tomorrow at six[17:00 UK time], it's our first game.
"As for the championship, I would say Internazionale, Milan and Roma did extremely well in the transfer market and there are favourites for the title together with Juventus.
"But let's not forget Napoli, the change of coach is a new challenge for them. Fiorentina are also doing well so I believe it will be a very competitive championship."
When a journalist noted that he didn't answer the question on Mourinho, Allegri added: "As I said, the league starts tomorrow so let's only talk about it."
