A FIRST ITALIAN TROPHY
“It was a great feeling to lift the trophy on Wednesday because it took an exciting journey to get there. When I arrived in Turin, I was asked to bring us home the Coppa Italia and a sixth consecutive Scudetto title.
"We completed the first of those objectives during the week and we’re looking to achieve the second on Sunday, not to mention a Champions League final in June.
"You always want to be in the mix in all competitions right until the very end of the season and we are doing that now thanks to the hard work we have put in throughout the year.
“You dream of being a part of these types of matches as a child; we were delighted to win the first trophy and we certainly don’t want it to be the only one this campaign.”
JUVE A PERFECT MIX
“The club has put together an amazing mix of players who have won everything in their careers and those on the way up with a burning desire to be successful.
“The hunger and the tenacity that we have is remarkable. This team is ruthless, a real winning machine.”
ALLEGRI, MASTER MAN-MANAGER
“I’ve always believed that I have the quality to play any role in central midfield. I took me a bit of time to adapt when I first joined Juventus but coach Allegri has helped me a lot to settle in.
“He knows when to crack the whip and when to put his arm round you and calm everything down and it’s for that reason that he has a brilliant relationship with his players.
“Everything needs to be perfect to enjoy a season like this and credit for that has to go to the coaches, physios, background staff, everyone.
"“You could say that we didn’t catch the eye at the start of the season but we did grind out results nonetheless. We took that confidence and slowly we began to improve in all aspects of our play and you can see the results now.”
“This is just a unique and delicate period of the campaign. The whole squad is raring to go on Sunday. We have huge respect for Crotone who are on a great run of form and will be fighting for every single ball.
“I have no doubt that you will see a great Juve performance out there; we’re fully focused on doing what needs to be done and sealing the title in front of our own supporters.”
