Juventus coach Del Neri writes off title prospects

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri has wrote off their Scudetto prospects.

The Bianconeri picked up their first point of the season yesterday in a 3-3 thriller against Sampdoria.

"The team showed that the difficulties seen against Bari a fortnight ago have been overcome," said Del Neri.

"Now we also have to get past our defensive distractions. Sampdoria have some very interesting players in attack, but we need to be more aggressive and close the gaps between the lines.

"I am interested that the side was much more solid both going forward and defending, as it was a different performance to Bari."

All the top teams have been shocked in Serie A in the first two rounds, so Juventus could still get back into the title race.

"No, we are not Scudetto material," shrugged Del Neri. "We won't set limitations, but we have a long way to go and have made many changes this summer."
