Juventus president Jean-Claude Blanc says the board always believed in their Scudetto chances.

Juve have hauled in leaders Inter Milan by five points after victory over Atalanta.

And Blanc said: "The Championship is reopened? It had never been closed, so there was nothing to reopen.

"We work very seriously, as indeed they are doing with Ciro (Ferrara), his staff and the entire team. We continue to work so we'll see how it goes, now it is just right to work."
