From Juve’s rise up the table and preparations for Lazio to upcoming encounters against Sevilla and Torino and realising his boyhood dreams, Claudio Marchisio’s 20-minute interview with JTV was not short on talking points.
The midfielder’s return from a month-long layoff in October triggered the Bianconeri’s recent resurgence, which now sees them sit in fifth place, but Marchisio was quick to stress that there remains plenty to be done in order to reach the Serie A summit.
He began: “We’ve by no means completed a comeback yet. It’s a long season and there are teams ahead of us who are on top of their game and are going well in the league.
“We’re now playing well again after the wins. This is important because for the first time, after three years of starting strongly and looking down on the others, we’re now part of the chasing pack and we need to keep digging deep in order to catch up with the sides at the top.”
