Aquilani discards Juventus’ title chances

Alberto Aquilani, Juventus’ match-winner against Bari, has discarded the Bianconeri’s chances to compete for the Scudetto this term insisting that their rivals are stronger.
Following the Old Lady’s late victory against bottom side Bari, Aquilani said that he felt the team was being inconsistent to challenge for major honours this year and would instead concentrate on securing fourth spot.
“Juve were used to having players like Zidane and Nedved. To be frank, we can’t win the Scudetto with this team. Inter, Milan and Roma have stronger squads.
“There are many injured players. But this is Juve and you have to work hard. We will need to roll up our sleeves and go forward like this. Our objective is fourth place.”

The 26-year old who moved to Turin on loan last summer also felt that the team’s tendencies to struggle against the smaller teams was a bit worrying. Juventus have dropped points against Bari , Brescia and Parma this season.
“We have been discussed a lot recently. This is a great club that has won everything, but the reality is that you can also struggle against Bari. We cannot be a Scudetto team one week and fail in the Europa League just before.”
Juventus are currently in fifth spot in the league with 34 points seven behind leaders Milan. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
