Cesare Prandelli did an interview with the newspaper il Mattino:“Will something change this year? I think that Juventus and Napoli start on the same level. De Laurentiis (Napoli president) keeping all his best players was a good move. But what does his team miss to arrive at the top? They must be convinced that they are the best, and not only saying it helps, they need to understand that during the 90 minutes there will be moments where they need to show some personality. It’s beautiful to play with the ball all the time, but it’s not always possible. And that’s where they need to improve.”

“It will not be easy for Juve to win the 7th consecutive Scudetto? The point is that only they have a winning habit in Italy. And that mentality they have in their DNA. That is the great strength of Juve: when they find themselves in difficult moments, they won’t make a drama about it.”

“What kind of a season will it be? I hope that the Italian teams return to being protagonists in Europe, like Juventus and Napoli were last year. I hope that for the good of everyone and the Serie A.”
