Juventus players celebrate after securing the Serie A title with a 0-0 draw against Roma.

Triumphant Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri warned their rivals the Old Lady’s hunger for dominance remains after their seventh straight Serie A title.

They earned a 0-0 draw at 10-man Roma on Sunday to win the league ahead of Napoli with a game to spare.

Allergi has been heavily linked to Arsenal as the London club search for Arsene Wenger’s replacement, but the former AC Milan boss said Juventus want to achieve more after completing the double this season.

He told Mediaset Premium: “Motivation is always there at Juventus. Next year, there will be some players leaving, others arriving, and the objective will be to be in the running for every objective in March again.

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

“It’s a wonderful feeling, as it’s never easy to win. There are players here who won all seven titles and deserve Saturday’s salute in front of their home fans. We want to celebrate all together in Turin.”

Paulo Dybala had a goal disallowed for the visitors but they rarely threatened Alisson in the hosts’ goal.

Radja Nainggolan was sent off for Roma after collecting two bookings in five second-half minutes but Juve were content with a point.

Roma booked their spot in the Champions League next year and need a draw against Sassuolo next week to clinch third spot ahead of Lazio.

Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco was quoted on the club’s Twitter account saying: “We are improving all the time but we can’t stop now. I’m happy with the mentality the side has started to develop.

“We have our identity. Continuing like this could see us achieve bigger and better things.”
