Conte states desire to win ‘historic’ third Scudetto with Juventus
The Bianconeri haven’t won three successive titles since the 1930′s when they won five in a row, but are firm favourites to achieve the same feat at the end of the upcoming campaign.
“I hear everyone talking about the Champions League, but I want people to understand that winning the Scudetto again would be something important and historic,” said Conte.
“The point is that this season will be very difficult,” he added. “I’ve told that to the players and myself, seeing as I never won three Scudetti in a row.
“We need to remain focused and determined. People on the outside will say that we’ve already won, that it is a formality, that we are the best.
“You can fall into the traps, to believe you are the strongest and thus underestimate the dangers that lie ahead.
“It will be a super, super, super tough championship for so many reasons. We’ll face enormous difficulties, many different kinds of difficulties.”
“Carlos is improving game by game but it is obvious that he, Ogbonna and Llorente need to get to grips with the way we play.”
Conte’s side recently finished last in the International Champions Cup pre-season tournament in the USA, after losing on penalties to Inter.
“I’ve liked what I have seen of Ogbonna, I’ve liked that a lot. Llorente too who, once he has recovered from the hard pre-season, will deliver his best.”
