Delneri: ´Hidden dangers´ for Juventus

Luigi Delneri has played down talk of a Champions League place, insisting Juventus are focusing on their Serie A clash with Fiorentina.

The Turin club are six points from Lazio in fourth on the league table, but have hit form in the run home to the end of the season.

Victory over Fiorentina would be Juventus’ fourth league win in succession, and Delneri stated that extending his side’s positive run was his main focus – not a Champions League spot.

“All the games have hidden dangers, so it will be a complicated and difficult match with Fiorentina,” he said.

“It’s going to be an important game and our recent wins have allowed us to remain in the hunt for an objective right to the end.”

“If you don’t set targets week by week, then you won’t achieve them. I don’t believe you can think long-term, so focusing only on Fiorentina must be our plan right now.”

Juventus are missing defender Giorgio Chiellini, midfielder Momo Sissoko and strike duo Vincenzo Iaquinta and Fabio Quagliarella, though Gianluigi Buffon is back after illness and should replace Marco Storari in goal.

“I understand Marco Storari wanted to make his mark during Buffon’s absence and has worked hard in training,” Delneri said.

“I understand him, but I make the decisions.”
