Carlos Tevez has warned Juventus fans not to expect the club to win the Uefa Champions League this season.
The Old Lady stormed impressively through the group stage of the competition last year, but were brought crashing back to earth by superior Bayern Munich in the last-eight.
The double Serie A champions have strengthened their squad in a bid to be more competitive in Europe this time around.
But even so, new addition Tevez suggests their focus will be first on winning a third successive Scudetto.
A guarantee of further domestic success will free Juve to play with abandon and without the pressure of expectation in the Champions League.
"I think we have to be calm and make sure we don't put pressure on ourselves to win the Champions League," 29-year-old Tevez said in an interview with CNN.
"If we don't then that pressure will become impossible to escape from.
"We have to be calm and know that winning the Scudetto again will make us part of Italian history and then we can think about everything else.
“We all dream of winning the Champions League but our main objective is winning Serie A.
“Then we can be calm in the Champions League and everything will become a lot easier."
