Juventus Prepares For 8th Scudetto, Allegri Says Juve, Ronaldo Will Move On

Juventus may finally lift the Scudetto for a record 8th time when they take on Fiorentina later today.

The Bianconeri were eliminated from the Champions League quarter-final in Turin by Ajax and Allegri said his team will not be disappointed by their Champions League exit but will relish their domestic title celebration.

Speaking on the chance to win the club’s eighth straight league title, the manager had this to say: “we have the chance to seal the Scudetto and we need to. We have to look ahead and get over the disappointment without looking for excuses.”

After a disappointing result last weekend against SPAL, we were not able to seal the league title in Ferrara. Saturday presents an opportunity to finally put that wrong, right.

“Once we’ve won the Scudetto then we can start planning for the future with calmness. The Scudetto is celebrated because it is a great achievement and the result of a year of hard work, despite being faced with difficulties and injuries. It would have been a positive season with 50% of our targets reached.

“If we seal the title then we have five more games ahead of us, in which we still need to give a good account of ourselves.”

“Cristiano Ronaldo, who will lift the March MVP award on Saturday has been confirmed by Allegri to be playing tomorrow. “Cristiano has had an extraordinary season and will play tomorrow.”

With 19 league goals, CR7 leads Juve in the goals department and is only three goals behind top spot in the league. We certainly hope his ‘extraordinary season’ can continue with a goal on Saturday.

“Cristiano plus Juventus doesn’t equal a guaranteed Champions League, this is how football is. Now we have to move on and think about winning the Scudetto, which will be the result of a great season.”

Speaking on the future of Ronaldo and Juventus it was apparent from Allegri that the two will move forward together. “Cristiano is the future of Juventus. He did very well this year and will do so the next, of course, he is disappointed like all of us are but he’s calm about it.”

Speaking on what the future holds for the club he said, “We have to evaluate everything at the end of the season, what’s gone well and what hasn’t and then look to improve. This year has been a great job winning both the Super Cup and the Scudetto.

“The eighth-consecutive Scudetto is a source of pride for all. Once it’s sealed we all have to enjoy it, it wouldn’t make sense not to celebrate it.”
