The Republic of Ireland manager was inducted into the Italian Football Hall of Fame on Thursday and was asked about similarities that he observed between the current side and that helmed by him during the early 1980s and 1990s.
The 73-year-old hailed the unselfishness displayed by all of the players donning a Bianconeri shirt in recent seasons.
"You know what I like about this Juventus? I do not see selfishness.
"I remember when Bettega and Platini enjoyed helping a teammate to score a goal. In today's Juve is the same spirit and this is worth a lot of points."
Furthermore, he added to the voice of ex-players calling for the purchase of a new striker and pointed towards a Champions League winning player as his favourite pick.
"The right name is Drogba. He is perfect and for the Champions League. He has class, experience and with Vucinic would create a good understanding.
"Of course, Giovinco should do more than just sit on the bench, but Juve will need everyone when it gets to spring and they are fighting for the Scudetto and Champions League. They can move forward on both fronts."
Juve have a four-point advantage over second-placed Inter Milan and the veteran manager feels that the Nerazzurri are the only team capable of posing a challenge in the current season.
"Inter are pretty solid. I do not know how serious the case is with Wesley Sneijder. I understand that sometimes it is not easy to choose between creativity and balance, but I like Stramaccioni.
"Whilst he is a young man, he has personality and speaks well. Then there is Cassano.
"At the European Championships in Portugal I spent hours and hours in his room talking to him. The Cassano of today has matured. That is to the merit of his wife and son. He is wiser.
"Now he has to win. Antonio thinks that he has played for a great Roma, in Madrid and in Milan. I remember an exchange of passes he had with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, beating three opponents, stuff to leave you open mouthed at.
"He is a talent that should have conquered everything, but he has not lived up to his value. And time passes for everyone. Cassano is the added value that Inter need to win the Scudetto."
