Chiellini: Poland is no holiday

Giorgio Chiellini has reiterated that Juventus are not treating tonight's clash with Lech Poznan in the Europa League as an excursion.

Juventus boss Gigi Del Neri told journalists yesterday that he would like the players to honour club legend Gaetano Scirea who died on a scouting trip to Poland 21 years ago.

"No one is thinking that we came to Poland for a trip," Chiellini said. "We want to win and go through to the next round.

"The Europa League is an important experience in view of the Champions League, which we are counting on playing next year.

"Giving up on trying to win a trophy like this would be a mistake and we are not going to make it."
