Rome: Juventus head coach Antonio Conte said he will discuss his future with the club following his side retaining the Serie A title with a 1-0 win over Palermo. "The bar has been raised higher and there is also an economic crisis in Italy. I thank president Andrea Agnelli, who wanted me here at Juventus, and for that I will be always grateful. I want what is best for everyone," said Conte on Sunday, reports Xinhua.

"Raising the bar means if we don't win the title next year, then it would be treated as a problem. We also finished in the top eight in Europe, in front of clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City, who have enormous economic potential.

"We must be very realistic to see what we are capable of doing and where we can end up. I remember the moment we went out against Bayern Munich; we were inundated with criticism from people saying we weren't up to the task. Every now and then in football, you have to sit back, relax and admit the other team was stronger. We doff our hats to Bayern.

"We also know that Juventus always start to win every tournament but we have to start the season with clear objectives and not raise expectations beyond what is reasonable," he said.
