Gianluca Vialli has told former club Juventus to focus on finishing second this season.
The former Champions League winner and Juve captain says the Scudetto is a step too far for his old club this term and instead they should worry more about overhauling AC Milan for second-place than table leaders Inter.
"It is now a race for second place," said Vialli. "Catching Inter now is impossible."
On coach Ciro Ferrara's situation, former Chelsea boss Vialli adds: "Juve are just starting again. They must defend and support Ciro. After being in Serie B, it's tough to go straight back to the top."
