    After scoring Juve’s second against Cagliari, El Rey Leon describes the team’s constant hard work throughout the season as key to a record points tally he believes may never be matched

    Fernando Llorente has expressed his delight at the Bianconeri’s monumental achievements over the course of his first year in the black and white stripes.

    Antonio Conte’s men have consistently made history in 2013/14, with records tumbling in front of their unstoppable path, and the 29-year-old striker said he doubts the team’s final haul of 102 points will ever be reached again.

    Taking a break from the celebrations to speak to the media, Llorente began: “I don’t know whether 102 points will ever be matched. It’s a spectacular achievement and we’re all very happy. It’s been a fantastic year.”

    The Pamplona-born hitman has netted 18 goals in all competitions following his latest strike this afternoon, a real striker’s finish inside the area that epitomises the Matador’s eye for the kill he has had since scoring in his first start against Verona.

    “We came out strongly this afternoon, putting them under heavy pressure in an attempt to win the game and win it early. My goal was thanks to an instinctive move.”

    Llorente concluded by paying tribute to his team-mates, who have shown hunger right until the very end this season.

    “Maintaining concentration was the hardest thing. After securing the title it hasn’t been easy to keep on winning the games that remained. But now we’ve made history with 102 points.

    “It’s credit to the boss. We’ve kept up the same mentality since the very beginning, without ever easing off. That’s the secret to success.”
