Ciro Ferrara: 'Serie A race over'

Former Juventus centre-back Ciro Ferrara believes that his old side have already wrapped up the Serie A title.

Former Juventus defender and coach Ciro Ferrara has insisted that no-one will be able to catch his old side in the race for the Serie A title.

Ferrara said that, despite Roma knocking out Juve in the Coppa Italia last night, they would not be able to close the current eight-point gap in the league table.

"It was an enjoyable game between two great teams playing good football," he told Tuttosport.

"Roma were more incisive and deserved their passage into the next round. But has it reopened the championship race? It was never open! Juventus, technically and in terms of how they play, are superior to all of the others.

"It's a championship in which everyone else is playing for second place - as first place has already been decided."

Ferrara has also coached Sampdoria and the Italy Under-21s.
