Juventus reportedly do not expect Antonio Conte to win the Champions League next term, with a real assault planned for 2015-16.
The Bianconeri’s three-year term of domestic success under their tactician has been in contrast to relative disappointment suffered in UEFA’s premier club competition.
However, where it has been previously believed that the Coach intends to shape a side from this summer more geared towards European success, including a prospective formation shift to a 4-3-3, the Gazzetta dello Sport report expectancy is not over the top.
The pink daily suggests that club officials anticipate an improved performance from the club this coming season, but that a real assault on the trophy is not planned until the 2015-16 campaign.
It is believed that the summer of 2015 is when the Old Lady is planning a more radical reorganisation of the squad, seen as linked to an anticipated improved budget for then, in relation to increased revenue from the new Serie A television rights package, and new a sponsorship deal.
