    A quietly confident Leonardo Bonucci chats to Jtv about the Scudetto, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League final


    “The next few weeks could confirm our position as one of the best teams in the world. To do that, we need to keep raising our game and make sure we are ready for the challenges that lie ahead.

    “Nothing should stand in our way between now and the end of the season; we want to keep our momentum as high as possible right until the final ball is kicked.

    "We have a chance to seal the Scudetto on Sunday, after that we will think about the Coppa Italia final and then on Cardiff.” 


    “This team is so strong, with experience in every position. The way the boss has us set up gives us responsibility to engage in all phases of play.

    “Everyone one of us works hard not only in our own areas of the field but for the whole team; the strikers graft to cover the midfielders who in turn do their part to make our defensive duties easier."


    “I’m proud to be part of the trio, which I think should extend to Gigi Buffon too. Our understanding grows year on year and our results on the pitch have demonstrated that. Giorgio, Andrea and I play by memory; we know each other’s moves perfectly."


    “Before the Champions League final we still have to win the league title and the Coppa Italia which in itself would be a legendary achievement.

    “I would have chosen Real out of the Madrid sides: Atletico would perhaps have been more defensive and tough to break down. That said, Real’s quality is there for all to see and we will need to be at our very best to beat them on the night.” 


    “It would have to be the first leg against Barcelona. The way we won the was a massive boost for our belief. Getting past Monaco was no more straightforward: we had everything to lose in that tie but did superbly to reach the final under pressure.”
