Carlos Tevez: 'Serie A remains number one priority'

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez insists that claiming a third successive Serie A title is the club's main focus this season despite efforts to improve in Europe.

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez has insisted that a third successive Serie A title remains the club's primary objective this season, despite their efforts in the Champions League.

The Old Lady face a fight to qualify for the last 16 in Europe after failing to win any of their first four group games, despite a 2-2 draw with Spanish giants Real Madrid in midweek.

Tevez believes that claiming a third Scudetto in a row must be the focal point of their campaign, while insisting that Juve match up to any of his previous clubs in terms of stature.

He told Globo Esporte: "Our biggest objective is the Scudetto. If we win the league for the third in a row, then we will make club history.

"Juventus are a great club, as are Corinthians, Boca Juniors and the two Manchester clubs. I don't see any difference.

"I am happy in Turin. It's a beautiful city and the supporters have given me a lot of affection. Listening to songs in my name is always a pleasure."

The Argentine striker has made a promising start to life in Turin, scoring six times in 11 Serie A matches.
