Scudetto glory surprised Marchisio

Claudio Marchisio has admitted that he has been surprised by how well the season has gone for champions Juventus.

“I’m happy that we have been able to complete the dream of winning the Scudetto,” stated the midfielder.

“We’ve won the League thanks to hard work and sacrifices.

“The last two seasons didn’t go very well for us, but we have achieved something truly unexpected this year.”

After finishing the last two campaigns in seventh place, the Bianconeri are still unbeaten this term under the guidance of Antonio Conte.

“Winning the Scudetto with Juventus was always my objective, but there are still two trophies on offer – the Coppa Italia and Euro 2012,” added the former Empoli player.

Marchisio has been impressive this term and also contributed nine League goals in the Old Lady’s march towards the title.

“I’ve had a fantastic season, scoring 10 goals overall,” he added. “I’ve won the League, I’m in the national team – I can’t complain.

“We started the season with other objectives, but it has ended in a great manner.”
