Juventus president Cobolli Gigli believes in second-place

Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli remains confident of finishing in second-place this season.

"We have always been aiming for second place and it is still possible, even if the defeat against Palermo saw us fall back," Cobolli Gigli stated.

"Saturday's game is crucial for both sides, but it is especially important for us to win after the three points we dropped last week.

"Beating Milan would be a big step forward and would at least guarantee us fourth place.

"But it's well known that it is one thing to finish second and quite another to come fourth."

The Juve chief concluded by responding to questions about possible Russian investment in the club.

"A Russian offer? I don't know anything about it, but what I read in the newspapers seemed like fiction," he stressed.
