Lichtsteiner: Milan still a Coppa Italia threat

Stephan Lichtsteiner agrees with Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has ordered his players to shift focus from their Scudetto celebrations to the upcoming Coppa Italia final.

Lichtsteiner joined Juve from Lazio in 2011, the season in which the Bianconeri won the first of their record five league titles.

Despite the club's remarkable achievement this season, the Switzerland international feels that he and his team-mates must heed Allegri's warning not to take their upcoming cup final against struggling AC Milan lightly.

"I'm in complete agreement with Allegri," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "Things didn't go the way we wanted them to [against Verona].

"But we're not alarmed in view of the Coppa Italia final. We're focused on Milan, who are still a great team, even in this moment of difficulty."
