Conte praises ´incredible´ Scudetto win

7 May 2012 14:33

Juventus coach Antonio Conte described the club's Scudetto triumph as 'incredible' quickly turned his attentions to the Coppa Italia final.

Conte's undefeated side clinched the title with a 2-0 win at Cagliari on Sunday through an early Mirko Vucinic strike and an own goal, but Juve have unfinished business with a Cup final to come against Napoli on May 21.

"We're extremely happy to have taken the Scudetto back to Turin, it's something incredible, unexpected and because of that it's even better," Conte said.

"My compliments to our supporters, they deserve it."

Following a run of 41 games undefeated, Juventus took the title from AC Milan who lost 4-2 in their derby with Inter Milan.

It was a result that also ended AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic's run of eight successive domestic championships with Juventus (two revoked), Inter Milan, Barcelona and now AC Milan.

Fabio Quagliarella mirrored Conte's thoughts and praised the man for masterminding Juventus' astounding run this season.

"We still have the Coppa Italia final, but now it's okay to celebrate," Quagliarella said.

"There isn't a date or a particular game in which we realised we could make it, but game after game we became more aware that we were strong and that we could achieve our aim and we made it!"

"This is my first Scudetto and it is an incredible feeling. We are still unbeaten this term and that is incredible.

"Conte, from the very start, gave us all faith and he always motivated us so that we offered our best.

"We all rowed in the same direction and the results rewarded us for the hard work and sacrifices.”

Midfielder Claudio Marchisio was thrilled with the title and insisted the squad would only get better as a result of playing Champions League football.

"We are a great squad, a team that is growing and we'll improve even more next season when we are back in Europe," Marchisio said.

"I've been waiting for this Scudetto since I first arrived in the first team and especially after our suffering over the last two seasons.

"We've had a great campaign," he said.
