Juve target Champions’ League Wednesday 15 May, 2002

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Juventus director Antonio Giraudo has revealed that the club’s number one objective for the new season will be the Champions’ League.

The Bianconeri official has admitted that he will watch tonight’s Glasgow Final with regret after Juventus trounced finalists Bayer Leverkusen earlier this season.

"I want the Champions’ League next year," he said. "We have a massive regret for what happened to us this term in the competition.

"We beat Leverkusen 4-0 and it just shows how certain incidents can decide the destiny of a competition."

The Bianconeri fell at the second group phase of the tournament when they and Arsenal were eliminated by the Germans and Deportivo La Coruna.

Coupled with Roma’s exit at the same stage, it was the second consecutive year that no Italian clubs had made it into the last eight of Europe’s premier tournament.

Nevertheless, with the Scudetto win, Giraudo was well satisfied with the campaign that has just ended.

"When you win the title it is always a fantastic year," he added. "But it could get even better because we have four youth teams who have all reached finals in different events."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well therefore we need a strong squad, strong midfield especially and a large squad.

But now that we won the scudetto, I think the club will focus more on the CL than on the scudetto.

I wouldn't expect a miraculous resurgence of Italian strength in Europe next season. But it's really lovely that Juve are back in CL! :happy:

I'm sorry guys

But Real Madrid will participate next season in CL. I appreciate your efforts, but no matter, Bayern, Man U., Barça, Depor, Valencia, will be there too, Italian teams have no chance to win. IMO as foreign viewer Serie A isn't living a good moment too many stars running behind the ball, in all the continent the stars run forward, and usually they win.

It's good to have a aim, but is Juve ready to sacrifice the scudetto for the European trophy?

Don't be so big - headed. :) ;)

Juventus will put all of their power in the Champions League.

We'll have a good chance to win it next year. The same chance as Real, Barca, ManU and the rest.

It would be great seeing us winning CL for two reasons:
1. Because we really need it, we haven't won any International Trophy since 1996.
2. It would be also great showing to the whole worlds that CALCIO is still among the best.

So, I really want us to concentrate on CL.
FORZA JUVE!

I would take the Champions League over the scudetto any time. It is the true test against champions. Real Madrid are the best at the moment and the more they win Europe, the more money they get to be invincible. We can't let that happen.

BRING BACK THE JUVE GLORY DAYS!!!!!!!

I don't believe, Juve have a good team but isn't enough to win CL.

if you're talking about the 2001-2002 squad you're right. But we have to wait and see what the 2002-2003 squad will look like.

Besides I think that for the past season the scudetto was the main objective. The team and the club will have less pressure about winning the scudetto and can focus more on the CL

Realsupporter , we need to have a strong and organised team. And if Lippi manages to create such team , we can even win CL without signing big names...though few transfers wouldn't do us any harm.

Yeah, Mikey, it's true that the teams are predictable. But we shouldn't forget that in order to play better a team should have players with flair (1 is not enough as we see)... erm, where are they?

Bye Bye.

Realsupporter is right, Juventus have a good team that could win the scudetto again next season but not good enough team to win the CL....
