Former Juventus striker Nicola Amoruso believes the Bianconeri are facing a difficult end to the season before they face Inter on 16 May, but must concentrate on the Coppa Italia Final.

With Inter starting the weekend 11 points clear at the top of Serie A with just nine games remaining, Juventus are in danger of seeing their nine-year streak of league titles come to an end, having disappointed under coach Andrea Pirlo.

Speaking to Italian radio station Radio Bianconera yesterday, Amoruso admitted that the final stretch of the season would be difficult for his former club.

“The run-up to Inter is not easy, but there is still the Coppa Italia Final to play,” the 46-year-old claimed.

An underwhelming season has also been tarnished by an uneasy relationship between the club and forward Paulo Dybala, but Amoruso insisted that Juventus needed to work with the Argentine to get the best out of him.

“Dybala can be an important player for Juventus, who must start showing his quality. He is one the best players and must return to form and shine for Juventus.

“Juve are not being Juve and we have seen a team that has been too soft. Juve are a team that should devour their opponents, but are too soft. The Juventus we saw against Napoli must be the norm,” the former striker concluded.

Amoruso scored nine goals in 53 appearances for Juventus between 1996 and 2002, whilst also enjoying a prolific spell with Reggina from 2005 to 2008, in which he netted 40 goals in 96 games.
