Guardiola respects Juve threat

Pep Guardiola has admitted that Juventus are ‘rightly’ looking to success in Europe next season and that they are ‘certainly stronger’.

After a season away, the former Barcelona Coach is preparing for life back in football with current Champions League holders Bayern Munich.

In considering his task for the coming season, the 42-year-old picked out Juventus as notable rivals for the Germans’ defence of their European title in 2013-14.

“In the Champions League Juventus are certainly stronger,” Guardiola told reporters today.

“They are a club with a lot of money and they can expend a lot. They are definitely a terrific club, fabulous.

“In Italy they have won so much and now rightly they are looking to Europe.

“The aspect of success and winning is related to the continuity of the project with their Coach, Conte.”
