With two assists, the goal that capped off the 4-1 victory and an ebullient all-round performance, it could hardly have been a better day at the office for Stephan Lichtsteiner this afternoon in the resounding away win against Cagliari.
The wing-back was on top form and could rightly feel very satisfied with his outing today, but, in typical Juventus fashion, he remains hungry for more success.
Speaking after the final whistle, the 29-year-old began: “Juventus need to go for all three competitions, we’ve got quality and an incredible team organisation. If we have belief, we could really manage it.”
The Bianconeri’s chance to set a new club record of 11 consecutive league wins looked in danger early on as the hosts took the lead through Mauricio Pinilla, but their patience and determination eventually paid off in style.
“We struggled after they went in front, and in fact Conti could have made it 2-0, but then we grew in stature. We knew the goal would come sooner or later, and it did.”
