Chiellini: We cannot stand still

14 May 2013 15:33

Juventus vice-captain Giorgio Chiellini insists his team will need to improve if they are to retain their stranglehold on Italian football.

The Turin-based giants were unbeaten during the 2011-12 Serie A season as they claimed their first top-flight title in nine years, while they also won the Coppa Italia during a wonderful campaign.

Antonio Conte's side have backed up their feat this season and although they have lost – a mere four times – they are nine points clear of second-placed Napoli in the Serie A table with just one match to play.

Juventus also reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League this season, but despite his side having won back-to-back Serie A titles and being littered with a superb crop of Italian talent, Chiellini is adamant they cannot stand still in the off-season.

"Throughout our two-year journey, we've made a great deal of progress," Chiellini told Sky.

"No one thought we'd be able to win as early as last year and then go on to achieve back-to-back Scudetto (Serie A) titles.

"We'll need to do well in the future to keep on improving, day after day, match after match. We know that it won't be easy. Winning again isn't just about personnel, it's also about the desire to achieve certain objectives."
