Khedira: Don't underplay Scudetto

Sami Khedira insists Juventus must not underplay their ‘special’ haul of eight straight Scudetti. “It shouldn’t be taken for granted.”

Juve’s Champions League exit to Ajax has arguably overshadowed their Serie A success, with no-one able to challenge the Bianconeri domestically.

However, Khedira said from the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix: “This season we won an eighth consecutive title.

“It’s something special, which shouldn’t be taken for granted. It’s a great success.

“The Champions League is one of Juventus’ objectives, but it’s not easy: seven or eight teams also dream of winning it.

“It’s for that reason we need to accept our elimination, even if it hurts. We’ll try to win it in the future.”

The midfielder will not play again this season after deciding to undergoing knee surgery.
