Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri refuses to talk publicly about going for the Scudetto after their 4-0 thumping of Reggina yesterday.

“Inter are the ones who have the pressure to win the Scudetto, as they are the holders. Our aim is to improve the third place we had last term,” smiled Ranieri.

“I have always said that Inter and Milan are the favourites. We all said it, from the President to the man in charge of the kit.

“We say the same thing and depending on the circumstances the media twists it to mean we are targeting the title or giving up all hope.

“Besides, every time we said we were targeting the title, we then lost! I will tell you this: Do you think Gianluigi Buffon ever plays to finish second? Of course not.

“Inter and Milan have to win the title, whereas our role is to cause them all sorts of trouble. Anything more is a bonus.”
