'Juve are working towards the title'

Gigi Del Neri has made no secret of the fact he is working towards winning the Scudetto after Saturday's 2-1 victory over Milan at San Siro.

Juventus currently lie fourth in Serie A, seven points behind League leaders Lazio after the opening nine games of the season.

Interviewed on Radio anch'io lo sport, Del Neri was naturally asked if he believes Juventus can win the Scudetto in May.

"We are working for this," he said. "In terms of mentality we are equal to anyone. There is a lot of enthusiasm to grow within the club, to give a lot to Italian football, to the fans, to everyone because they deserve it.

"Let's say that we are on the right path. There is a lot of work to do, but the lads have applied themselves a lot.

"It's an interesting season. Lazio are certainly the most in form team. They are having a great start to this season, which has been uncertain.

"Similarly to us, there is growth within the group: Lazio and Juve are trying to do this and make their mark."

Looking at Juventus' injury problems, Del Neri said: "We can try Simone Pepe at full-back as a temporary solution.

"Simone has great qualities when adapting himself in emergencies. Juve is worker-like in spirit and strength. There is a great capacity to adapt," he concluded.
