Miralem Pjanic hailed this current Juventus side as ‘the best Juventus ever’ and heaped praise on teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Bianconeri signed the Portuguese forward with the express intention of lifting the one trophy that’s eluded them for 20 years.

“My dream is to win the Champions League with Juventus, and we’ll do everything to bring her back home,” Pjanic told Rai Sport.

“The treble must be a dream and an objective for us. When I signed, the President showed me a picture of the Bianconeri, who had won five Scudetti in a row, and he told me we’d have to overcome that team.

“We succeeded, reaching seven, but now we have to bring new trophies home. We have a very big squad and the club are working every year to improve it and win the Scudetto.

“Allegri manages the squad excellently and is very good tactically; he transmits so many qualities to us.

“Ronaldo is also benefitting us greatly with his experience, quality and his way of working so we can keep improving.

“These are all aspects that have impressed me a lot. This is definitely the best Juve ever. Gigi is a legend, probably the best goalkeeper of all time.

“He was an important man in the dressing room, an exemplary figure who transmitted all his Juve-ness to us.

“After he left, ‘Chiello’ has become more of a reference point. He and Gigi know how to make you understand what Juventus are all about.

“Certainly every Juve fan dreams of Pogba

“We’ve signed some excellent players and now the club will think about how to improve the team.

“He’d be welcomed back, of course. He’d receive more than a welcome back.”
