Juventus Cannot Be Considered A Great Team - Giorgio Chiellini(Goal.com)

Defender Giorgio Chiellini has suggested that Juventus are not a great team, pointing to changes in personnel and a lack of consistency as the main reasons.

"We want to get past these difficulties that we saw in the second-half of the game against Bari, where everyone gave their best to recover. Watching from the outside, you notice certain issues," he was quoted as saying by Il Corriere dello Sport.

"Compared to the beginning of the season, something seems to have broken down for us.

"We lack a lot of things and have changed many players. For example, [Pavel] Nedved is not here anymore, someone who is part of the history of Juventus.

"These changes are not easy to adjust to. Overall, we have had too many ups and downs to be considered a great team. We haven't had continuity and can hardly understand why."

The Bianconeri were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich last week, and have already crashed to four defeats in Serie A, leaving them six points adrift of league-leaders Inter.

Juventus midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has cleared up the persistent rumours that are linking the Mali international away from La Vecchia Signora.

"I arrived at Juventus in 2008," the 24-year-old stated to Datasport. "And I am comfortable here.

"I may be out at the moment, but I hope to recover and be 100 per cent for 2010.

"I want to return to being the player I was before," Sissoko concluded.

Sissoko has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and Barcelona. The Bianconeri take on Catania in their last game for 2009.

Momo Sissoko has jumped to the support of underfire Juventus teammates Diego and Felipe Melo.

The Brazilian pair have failed to live up to expectations since their summer arrival.

But Sissoko says: "Juve has spent so much on Diego and Melo. They're currently going through a difficult moment, but I believe they can both help the team, already starting with the challenge against Catania on Sunday."

He added: "I have a contract until 2014 and I'm happy here."
