"Unfortunately, we are out of the Champions League, but we are well-positioned in the league and winning the Coppa Italia is another goal of ours".

Juventus crushed AC Milan 4-0 in the Coppa Italia final to move to the brink of a domestic double.

Argentina coach, Jorge Sampaoli, has been handed a major boost with AC Milan midfielder, Lucas Biglia set for a return to action for the club in Wednesday's Copa Italia final clash against Juventus.

"After my error on the marking for Kalidou Koulibaly, everyone said I was rubbish", he told RAI Sport shortly after the final whistle.

"The lads had an extraordinary game and deserved this win".

"I am the coach, all I do is train the players who are put at my disposal".


The Turin side are six points clear of Napoli with two games to play and their goal difference is better by 16.

Seen as the natural successor to legendary Italian 'keeper Gianluigi Buffon he's earned five global caps to date keeping two clean sheets in the process.

Juve, meanwhile, struggled to carve out clear-cut chances in the first half and were restricted to efforts from distance, none of which were troubling for Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Centre-back Medhi Benatia scored twice for Juve, heading in the opener in the 56th minute from Paulo Dybala's cross.

A miserable evening for Milan was complete 14 minutes from time when a corner from Miralem Pjanic was headed into his own net by Nikola Kalinic. "I felt bad for a few days, but fortunately the lads completed the job and I thank them for being close to me".

"I know that I am being judged for what I am doing each day, the duration of my contract is not important, but we need to understand who we are now, we need to think about the next 180 minutes, because the repercussions of this defeat may be hard".
