From the Olimpico’s spotlights to those of Sky. The day after the victory vs. Cagliari and two days prior to departure for Manchester, an important part of Juventus moved to Milano. Giorgio Chiellini, Milos Krasic, Claudio Marchisio, Marco Motta and Marco Storari dressed as “actors for a day” and shot for a series of promo which will be broadcasted in the next days.
The visit was also the occasion to speak about the situation at Juventus. Giorgio Chiellini did, and he spoke live on Sky Sport 24. Many items, not missing a little irony. Here are some of his statements.
More serenity. "After yesterday victory we are all more serene. Against Cagliari we made a very good match and deserved to win. Compared to the challenge vs. Palermo, we had a different approach, putting the right strength and concentration we have not had on Thursday".
Hunting for balance. "This summer we started well, suffering very few goals. Then when the championship started we found some difficulties, mostly from balance point of view, between the goals we score and those we suffer. But we are sure it’s only a matter of time. I hope we’ll soon win a match 1-0, for us defenders this would really be the top".
A winning championship for Livorno. "Let’s hope that a livornese could celebrate the winning of the Championship. Obviously I would like to be the one celebrating, but if it was not so, I hope Allegri is going to win it. I’ve been knowing him since years, he is a good trainer and deserves the best".
All together, also with supporters. "In this period there is little time to train and this is not very positive for automatisms. But the team has the right mood and the desire to do well. And also our supporters understood this. They showed it on Thursday, when they applauded even though we lost the match".
Agnelli’s presence. "This year there is a different mood all around. I think that this is because of Andrea Agnelli. His presence can be felt and it evokes the myth of the Avvocato. Also something inside of our supporters changed".
Future Captain? "It’s too soon to speak about being captain in the future, I hope Alex and Gigi last much longer. For sure I owe so much to this team and to this Club. In Torino I became a real player and a real man".
Is the season after a World Cup particular? "Seasons following to World Cups are always particular. It’s not easy starting at best for those who took part to the event. But I am sure that little by little all values will come out. Our target? We absolutely must go back play the Champions League, it’s too important, for prestige as well as for economic reasons. If Inter and Milan do not misfire it will be difficult keeping up, but we’ll be able to say something too, if they miss something".
Inter can wait. "We are not yet thinking about Sunday match. On Thursday we’ll meet Manchester City, and for us it will be a fascinating match, but also an important test. Moreover, we care about Europa League".
Better in the middle. "Me quarterback? I feel better in the middle, but I’ve never said I don’t want to play on the left. I adapt to the team’s needs".
