Carlos Tevez capped an impressive competitive debut by weighing in with the final goal in this evening’s 4-0 rout over Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.
While the Argentine striker has only been training alongside his new team-mates for a month and a half and continues to get to grips with a different style of play, he believes he is edging towards peak fitness ahead of next week’s championship opener against Sampdoria.
Speaking to reporters in Rome, the 29-year-old said: “I’m happy about the victory and the team’s performance as a whole. Physically speaking, I feel good and will develop as I continue to get games under my belt. All I have to improve is my contact with the ball and understanding with my team-mates."
Following their promising showing in the Bianconeri’s last Guinness International Champions Cup fixture against Inter, Tevez was again partnered in attack with Mirko Vucinic for tonight’s Super Cup final at the Stadio Olimpico.
And the former Manchester City frontman says the talent available to Antonio Conte, along with the manager’s meticulous attention to detail, will enable Juventus to enjoy a successful 2013/14 campaign.
“It’s a pleasure to play alongside talented players such as Vucinic. This Juve side can go far, the aim is to win another Scudetto, but we know we still have to improve. Conte reminds me of Ferguson in certain ways, especially in his desire to leave no stone unturned.”
