Lippi: Juventus ambition is to dominate Europe

Former Juventus coach Marcello Lippi feels his old club can push to dominate Europe.

Juve are now into the Champions League quarterfinals.

"Juventus have managed to rebuild their mentality, but they hadn't always won," he told Il Processo di Lunedí, an Italian talk-show.

"Before I joined them, the Bianconeri hadn't won anything for 10 years. That's how it was with [former Coach Antonio] Conte too, who built a supremacy in Italy.

"Now the target is to become dominant in Europe, though Bayern [Munich], Real [Madrid] and Barcelona are difficult to outdo.

"It takes quite a bit of luck in the draw. Three years ago, if they hadn't drawn Bayern, they might have progressed.

"Against Atletico Madrid I liked the team a lot. Then there were two great games against Borussia Dortmund.

"International development goes through these stages.

"But we can't say that we've had no luck. Getting drawn with Monaco certainly isn't like being handed one of the other great teams."
