Juventus face tough task to win third consecutive Scudetto, says Agnelli

The Bianconeri president has set his sights on more silverware next term and wants to go as far as possible in Europe as well
Juventus president Andrea Agnelli realises that the reigning Serie A champions could face a tough task to win their third consecutive Scudetto next season.

The Turin powerhouse pipped runners-up Napoli to the domestic title this term after finishing ahead of AC Milan last season, but Agnelli has stressed that history has shown that it will not be easy to make it three in a row.

"I think every part of the club wants to continue winning, in Italy and Europe. It will be difficult because next year we have a date with history," Agnelli told Sky Sport Italia.

"Except for the five-year streak in the early 1930s, Juventus have never won three successive Scudetto titles, so we need to focus on next year and this date with history.

"We want to be the first Juventus side [since the early 1930s] to win three consecutive league titles and go as far as possible in Europe."

The Bianconeri won five consecutive domestic titles from 1930-31 until 1934-35.
