Champions! Juventus players engage in wild celebrations after Roma slip-up hands them third successive title [Video]
- May 4, 2014
It has long been a matter of when rather than if. Despite an extraordinary campaign by AS Roma, Juventus have maintained the irrepressible form that granted them two successive league titles to add a third.
The squad were gathered together in a hotel room watching nearest rivals Roma visit Catania, knowing that anything less than a win for Francesco Totti and co. would crown Juventus champions without even playing.
Roma had been in amazing form, entering the match on the back of a nine-game streak of wins but clearly maintaining this level of mastery was too exhausting for them and they fell to a 4-1 defeat, much to the joy of the Juventus players and staff.
Three league titles might make you question the tender years of 44-year-old coach Antonio Conte until you see him joining his ecstatic players in their jubilant celebrations, jumping into the arms of midfield powerhouse Paul Pogba!
Pogba was not the only one to receive the manager’s embrace, with Conte thanking all of his players, including summer recruits Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente, two crucial components to retaining the title with 34 league goals between the pair.
