Juventus president Jean-Claude Blanc says qualifying for the Champions League is a must.

Juve suffered again last night, being held 1-1 by Livorno to drop further down the Serie A table.

Blanc said: “(Momo)Sissoko says that the team is depressed? In my opinion, it's not the right word. That attitude was justifiable for the many defeats. The sadness from this point of view and the disappointment were comprehensible.

“It's no longer time to make declarations, but we have to do everything to qualify for the Champions League. Our objective is to recover as many positions as possible.”
