Juventus captain Alessandro del Piero says they won't transform into sudden title contenders with a couple of major signings. "It's not as simple as just bringing in two or three champions," Del Piero explained to Tuttosport.
"There are lots of other factors involved. For example, we played several games at night in the winter this season.
"On these evenings it was very cold or humid, which didn't help and then there were the refereeing errors that influenced results.
"But it was our fault because defensive and attacking mistakes stopped us achieving what we could have. We need to put that right because I don't want to finish second or third again.
"As far as transfers are concerned I have never vetoed any swoop," Alex continued.
"The reason for that is very simple. I don't talk to the club about the transfer market and they don't ask for my opinion."
