Allegri: I'm staying at Juventus

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri on Sunday hailed his side's winning mentality as they sealed a seventh straight Serie A title after a goalless draw against 10-man AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in the Italian capital.

Allegri is the darling of the Juventus faithful, but Marotta revealed the 50-year-old's appointment as Antonio Conte's replacement in 2014 was not a popular one with some of the club's fans.

Juve could not capitalise, although they were content with the point as Allegri's side completed the double just days after their 4-0 victory over AC Milan at the Stadio Olimpico.

With one match left to play Juve can not be caught by second-placed SSC Napoli, who are four points behind after winning 2-0 at UC Sampdoria.

Massimiliano Allegri is not completely out of the running to replace Arsene Wenger but the Italian wants assurances from Arsenal's hierarchy over their power structure and transfer policy, according to reports.

"We have to congratulate Napoli, which kept pace with a great Juventus". "We have not yet thought about the future, as we are still concentrated on the end to the season". That left many pundits - including Allegri - naming Maurizio Sarri's Napoli as favourite for the title. "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".

Roma's Radja Nainggolan saw red in the 68th minute, but the capital outfit held firm against the Champions, who secured their 34th League title.

Despite the numerical advantage Juventus still barely threatened.

They upped the tempo after the restart and Argentina striker Dybala had a classy goal correctly ruled out for offside three minutes into the second half.

"Napoli had a very good season and maybe both of us deserved to win the title, but together we made Serie A captivating for those overseas once again".

"It's a club that succeeds in remaining united through difficulties. This anger and this desire to win has to be an example to all the teams". "Next season, there will be players who will arrive and others who will leave".
