thumbnail Hello,

The Italy international has stressed that the Old Lady are full of ambition, but added that they're not getting carried away after their good start to the season

Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo has stressed that the club are determined to return to the pinnacle of Italian and European football in the not too distant future.

The Turin giants' last official Serie A title dates back to 2002-03, while they have not won a major European trophy since the Champions League in 1995-96, but Pirlo feels the club are on the right path to return to the top.

"Juventus want to reign in Italy and Europe once more and that’s a challenge I want to be part of. Right from the moment I arrived at Juve, I could immediately sense the club’s will to win, the determination to go as far as possible as quickly as possible," Pirlo said to Fifa.com.

"The coach, the club and the players are all on the same wavelength. From my personal experience, I think we’ve got all the ingredients for success."

The playmaker discussed his side's chances of winning the Scudetto this term, and he stressed that the Bianconeri have to stay grounded.

"It’s still too soon to tell whether we can win the Serie A title and, to be honest, I don’t even think we should be thinking about that yet," he continued.

"Juve have finished in seventh place for the past two seasons, so we need to keep our feet on the ground, keep working hard and continue playing the way we’ve been doing since the start of the campaign."

Juventus currently top the Serie A table with 29 points from 13 games.
