Target, Allegri Vows To Remain In Juventus

"It's about planning what the future of Juventus will be, because once we've finished celebrating, we have to sit around a table with clear heads", Allegri said.

Juve sealed a seventh successive Scudetto with a point at Roma on Sunday as both they and Napoli kicked off at the same time, but that was not the case in earlier weeks when the pressure appeared to get to Sarri's side.

Allegri has been heavily linked to Arsenal as the London club search for Arsene Wenger's replacement, but the former AC Milan boss said Juventus want to achieve more after completing the double this season.

The trophy will be awarded then and a farewell ceremony expected to honour retiring skipper Gianluigi Buffon. "You need to take it one step at a time without getting overwhelmed by enthusiasm when things are going well and you need to never stop working in the hard moments".

Allegri had led them to two finals in three seasons but this time their challenge ended in the quarter-finals to Real Madrid.

The golden era overseen by Allegri was certainly not anticipated when he succeeded club great Antonio Conte in 2014, six months on from being sacked by AC Milan.

"There is a lot of optimism".

"In the Champions League the difficulties are higher than those in the championship, but we have this goal ahead of us and we will definitely go for it again next season".

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has responded to a jibe from Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne that the Serie A champions are "used to" losing finals, arguing "we lose finals because we play them". "The results speak for Allegri, and I hope we can continue with him".

That left many pundits - including Allegri - naming Maurizio Sarri's Napoli as favourites for the title.

"They spoke too soon and they paid for it".

"The only regret I have this season is that we lost the Scudetto in the hotel and not on the pitch".

"This sport has become a business for everyone".
