Vucinic: Four more battles

Mirko Vucinic is aware that Juventus will still have to fight for the title. “We have four battles ahead of us to win the war.”

The Old Lady are in pole position to lift the Scudetto seeing as they have a three-point lead over Milan with just four games of the championship left.

“We are aware of our strength, but the most important thing is that four tough games now await us,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’ve gone close to winning the title on two or three occasions. However, as Coach Antonio Conte says, nobody remembers when you don’t succeed.

“We’re in front and now it just depends on us. We have four battles ahead of us to win the war.”

Juventus were trailing Milan in the standings until the Old Lady started to put together a string of wins. The 1-0 at Cesena last night was their seventh in a row.

“We played great against Inter, then again against Lazio. We have understood, with the passing of time, that we were getting stronger,” he added.

Vucinic, 28, has only scored six goals in 29 League games for the club, but he’s been a vital cog in the plans of Conte.

“The Coach is an important figure for all and for everything in the changing room.

“He’s made me feel important, like he has with my teammates, and we are getting what our hard work deserves. Thanks to him, I’ve learned how to run like a madman.

“My position doesn’t matter, the important thing is to be first. I sacrifice myself because we breathe and live as a team. We’re a fantastic squad.”
