Agnelli: 2012 only the first step for Juventus

The Bianconeri president believes their Scudetto win last season will be the start of something special for the club and urged his side to focus on the challenges ahead
Andrea Agnelli says Juventus' success in 2012 "was just the first step" on their route to becoming a footballing powerhouse once again.

The Old Lady pipped AC Milan to the Serie A title by four points and remained unbeaten throughout the entire campaign.

They have since followed that up with a flying start to their current domestic campaign - topping the table by four points and qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages as group winners - much to the delight of Agnelli.

"This year has been great," he told reporters.

"We are very proud of what we have achieved. But it is important to think about the next targets. We won't stop now, the 2012 Scudetto was just the first step of our route."

Juve ran out 1-0 winners over Palermo on Sunday thanks to a 50th minute goal from Stephan Lichsteiner and face Cagliari in a Coppa Italia clash on Wednesday.
