Juventus coach Conte plays down Double talk

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has urged fans not to get carried away after progressing to the Champions League quarterfinals.

Some in Italy are starting to suggest Juve could go for The Double, as they are top of the Serie A standings.

“It’s all very easy with words, but we have to keep our feet firmly on the ground. Without any false modesty, it will be very difficult for us to repeat our success in Serie A, as Europe takes a lot out of the players and their Coach.

“It is our first experience in two major competitions, so we are learning and it is a new challenge for us.

“There are also some strong antagonists in Serie A like Napoli, Lazio and Milan. It won’t be easy, but the important thing is we are building something special at Juventus.

“Whether we achieve our objectives or not, we are building something here and we should be satisfied.”
