Del Neri ready for Juve task

Newly-installed Juventus head coach Luigi Del Neri admits that he faces a major rebuilding job at the Serie A giants.
Del Neri guided Sampdoria to fourth place in the Italian top-flight this season, three places higher than Juve, who only narrowly qualified for next season's Europa League.
He told Tuttosport: "In effect I feel a great enthusiasm. Juve represent a point of departure or even one of arrival.
"At a club like Juve you are forced to carry great objectives. I will have to be demanding with the players, the club and myself.
"It's always the club that makes a coach great, not the opposite. I have to take in the news. We at Sampdoria have been so focused on the Champions League that I have not had time to think about it.
"I am sincere. It's been much more difficult to take over a team that has won everything. Here there is the need to rebuild a mentality.
"There aren't any doubts on the fact that the players of the squad know how to play football. I think it's necessary to work on the attitude."
