Black Stars midfielder, Kwadwo Asamoah won his sixth straight Scudetto title with Juventus on Sunday thanks to a 0-0 stalemate against Roma.

For the fourth season in a row the Turin giants took the league and Cup double, days after beating AC Milan 4-0 in the Italian Cup in Rome.

"If they don't kick me out, I'm thinking of staying at Juventus next year as well", the 50-year-old told reporters, quoted by Ansa news agency.

The point was enough to give Juve an unassailable four-point lead over second-placed Napoli with just one game remaining.

"It's been really tough and we have to compliment Napoli, as they kept the pressure on to the end and won at Sampdoria".

Maurizio Sarri believes Napoli were psychologically affected by repeatedly playing after rivals Juventus in the Serie A title race.

"The greatest merit of the (Juventus) team was that they were always able to keep their calm because in football things can change in a second", Allegri added. You reach the final objective with one small step at a time.


"You have to work on yourself and find the motivation within yourself too, setting personal targets as well as those for the group".

Roma played the final 20 minutes on Sunday a man down after Radja Nainggolan was sent off for a second yellow card after a foul on Argentina striker Paulo Dybala.

"Juventus have a special mentality that has been built up through the years", said Di Francesco. "It is also a solid and united club, even in hard times".

Napoli moved to 88 points with its victory at Sampdoria, beating its club points record ahead of the final round.

The contest for the last Champions League place is heading for a thrilling finale in Serie A after Lazio was held to a 2-2 draw at relegation-threatened Crotone.

"When the next season begins, we all start from zero points and must continue proving we are competitive".
