On the eve of the new season, the Juventus-inspired team have been on a rollercoaster, going from one of the best to the worst in their history, but a star striker is set to be named the Serie A’s best player in this week’s edition of the ‘best players in the league’ poll.
After a sensational start to the campaign, Juventus were beaten 4-1 by AC Milan on Tuesday, but Juve boss Marcella Lippi said on Tuesday that he is very pleased with the squad’s performance.
“We have had a great start.
The last four weeks we have won six and drawn one, and I am very happy with our performances.
We have been good defensively,” Lippi told reporters ahead of the game against Roma.”
I think that is a sign of good character.
We showed the character of a team who won the last three games of the season and we had to go through a difficult period of a long season but we are in a very good position and we have not lost any of our great players.”
Lippi has already confirmed that the team will have a strong squad this season and has named a strong starting XI in a bid to help them avoid relegation from the top flight.
“There are two sides in the squad, one from the Premier League and one from Serie A. We will try to be in the Premier and make the most of it,” Luffi said.
“The team I have is the strongest one, with a lot of talent and it will take a few years to find out who is better.”
The squad I have has a good balance of players from every position, from midfield to defence and forward.
“But we will try not to go down the wrong path.
We are trying to find our best and try to win games, and that’s what matters.”
Luffi has not lost confidence in his side, despite their poor start to this season, and believes they can do well in this campaign.
“They have the quality to compete with anyone in the competition, with all the teams in the world.
They have been in the Champions League in every season.
We believe we can do it.”
When we play like that, it is easy for everybody to say we have to improve, but we can still do better.
“If we play well and play with a little bit of quality, we can score goals.
We can score a lot, too.”LUFFI, BORLANO, BIDEN, BAGLIAVARI, LUFFI: who has the best Serie A?
