Allegri planning to stay at Juventus

Allegri planning to stay at Juventus

"Juventus has a special mentality that has been built up over the years, they are a club that manages to stay united and compact in hard times, and that's what the other teams have to do", Di Francesco said.

Former AC Milan boss Allegri moved to Juventus in 2014, replacing Conte at the Italian champions.

"It's been really tough and we have to compliment Napoli, as they kept the pressure on to the end and won at Sampdoria".

Juventus's last-gasp 3-2 comeback victory over Inter Milan two weeks ago delivered the killer blow to Napoli's bid for a first title since the days of Argentina legend Diego Maradona back in 1990. "Credit goes to the lads for keeping their cool, taking things one step at a time towards our final objective".

Paulo Dybala had a goal disallowed for the visitors but they rarely threatened Alisson in the hosts' goal.

The 44-year-old German has agreed to succeed Unai Emery, who will leave after the final game of the French season this weekend.

34- The Bianconeri have now won the league 34 times - this is 16 more titles than any of their Serie A rivals.

"What Juve have more than anyone else in Italy is the mentality that has been built up over the years", Di Francesco told Sky Sport Italia.

And despite speculation linking Allegri with the vacant Arsenal manager's job, club CEO Giuseppe Marotta said he was confident he would remain to target the elusive European title. "They are an example for other teams to follow". It was here he was asked by a reporter: "Juventus said they would play this match as if it were a Champions League final and they lost..."

Arkadiusz Milik curled a delightful effort into the top left corner in the 72nd minute, seconds after coming off the bench, while Raul Albiol headed in a corner eight minutes later.

"When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive".

Any one of five clubs could be relegated on the final day of the season.
