    Claudio Marchisio looks back on an unforgettable calendar year for the club following Juventus’ 3-2 win against Carpi on Sunday

    Three pieces of silverware and the opportunity to claim more in the New Year, it’s fair to say that the past 12 months will not be forgotten in any hurry by anyone of a Bianconero persuasion.

    Juventus’ midfield enforcer Claudio Marchisio echoed these sentiments in the moments after his team sealed a seventh straight victory that puts them in a promising position to make 2016 just as memorable.

    Speaking to the media, the Little Prince began: “From winning two trophies and reaching the Champions League final in the first six months, to our current run of form that sees us fighting strongly on all three fronts, it’s been a great year all round.”

    Focusing on his side’s latest triumph, Marchisio pointed to areas for improvement after the Christmas break, namely maintaining their focus up until the final whistle after Carpi threatened to salvage an unlikely draw in the encounter’s closing stages.

     

    “We were all angry with the way we handled the final five minutes because we risked ruining a perfect day. Fortunately, we came away with the three points and we’ll enjoy what was a very important victory. We responded well to going behind and then controlled proceedings to close the year in style.”

    Wrapping up the interview, Marchisio had a very simple answer to the reasons behind the Bianconeri’s rapid rise up the table following a tough start to the season: hard work.

    “Arriving at a club that has won four league titles in a row may seem easy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There were plenty of new players who needed time to settle in, there were also injuries, but we’ve worked tirelessly as a group to get where we are. Now we need to continue in this vein in order to achieve our goals in the New Year.”
