Juventus eying historic third Scudetto: Conte

Rome, July 12 (IANS) Juventus head coach Antonio Conte has claimed that his side will go for a historic third Scudetto this season despite tough challenges from other Serie A sides.

The Serie A champions invested heavily this summer to bring in Fernando Llorente from Athletic Bilbao and Carlos Tevez from Manchester City, and seem better-equipped than last season.

Conte, however, warned of any complacency from his camp.

"To win in the third year would be historic. But we know it's going to be very difficult to repeat. If we work hard though, we can do something historic," he was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

"Beyond those arriving and those leaving the important thing is to have the desire to win. In these past two years, we have written an important page in our history. We got back to the image that Juventus have always sought," he added.
