Ranieri accepts Juventus off the pace

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri accepts his team is some way off the pace in terms of this season's title challengers.

"In pre-season you can't compare sides, but we know that we are still a long way off the top," he stated. "The other giants are just regaining their stride, but we have to do double the work as we are preparing and oiling the mechanism."
