Marcello Lippi has discussed the development of former team Juventus, as they head into the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Old Lady are up against Ligue 1 side Monaco in April, as they look to progress into the semi-final of the most prestigious European club tournament, and the 66-year-old was openly impressed with their progress.

“Juventus have managed to rebuild their mentality, but they hadn’t always won,” he said at Il Processo di Lunedí, an Italian talk-show.

Marcello Lippi has discussed the development of former team Juventus, as they head into the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Old Lady are up against Ligue 1 side Monaco in April, as they look to progress into the semi-final of the most prestigious European club tournament, and the 66-year-old was openly impressed with their progress.

“Juventus have managed to rebuild their mentality, but they hadn’t always won,” he said at Il Processo di Lunedí, an Italian talk-show.

“Before I joined them, the Bianconeri hadn't won anything for 10 years. That's how it was with [former Coach Antonio] Conte too, who built a supremacy in Italy.

“Now the target is to become dominant in Europe, though Bayern [Munich], Real [Madrid] and Barcelona are difficult to outdo.

“It takes quite a bit of luck in the draw. Three years ago, if they hadn't drawn Bayern, they might have progressed.

“Against Atletico Madrid I liked the team a lot. Then there were two great games against Borussia Dortmund.

“International development goes through these stages.

“But we can't say that we've had no luck. Getting drawn with Monaco certainly isn't like being handed one of the other great teams.”

Finally, Lippi added a closing word on the Calciopoli scandal, the final ruling of which was heard today.

“I think there have been many, many things that emerged after the sentence, new facts that people did not imagine.

“It wasn't just a couple of poisoned apples, but I should say no more now. It's been many years.”
