'Juventus will be like Real Madrid and Barcelona in two years' - Tacchinardi

The retired midfielder stated that the Turin club will soon be on top of the football world and was full of praise of the Bianconeri directors' work at the Serie A side
Former Italy international Alessio Tacchinardi believes that Juventus will soon scale the same heights as La Liga duo Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Bianconeri are currently one point clear of AC Milan at the top of the Serie A standings with six games remaining. Antonio Conte's men are very close to securing a place in next season's Champions League after a two-year absence, and the long-time club servant expects the Old Lady to soon be back at the top.

"General director Beppe Marotta and president Andrea Agnelli are making the difference, when compared to their predecessors," Tacchinardi, who played at Juve between 1994 and 2007, told Radio Mana Mana.

"In two or three years, Juventus will be like Real Madrid and Barcelona.

"Antonio Conte has managed the situation differently because he is now backed by everyone at the club."

Juventus will host Roma on Sunday in their next Serie A fixture as they close in on the domestic crown.
