A Fernando Llorente reinvigorated by his rest has called on the Bianconeri to keep up their killer instinct as they approach the decisive final stages of the campaign.
Tonight was the second 2-0 win against Livorno of the season, and after netting a stunning goal last time out, the Spaniard showed real hunger to go one better by bagging both this evening.
In his post-match interview, Llorente acknowledged the pressure that weighs on the shoulders of those who wear the famous black and white stripes, but insisted that it’s only right that the players should feel motivated to keep on winning.
He began: “That’s how it should be for all great sides. This current period is vital, there are just a few games left now and we need to be strong and aggressive.
“We mustn’t look at Roma, instead we should concentrate on ourselves. We won’t have any problems if we play as we know how.”
The 29-year-old concluded by describing the new lease of life he felt tonight against the Amaranto after benefiting from manager Antonio Conte’s squad rotation policy.
“The rest has done me good, I feel strong again. I was a bit tired in recent games and not as good as usual. But that’s normal, it happens when you have so many fixtures to play.”
