    Juan Cuadrado previews this weekend’s visit of Palermo and praises Juve’s team spirit in Friday’s interview with Jtv

    Often seen roaming down the right in the black and white of Juventus, Juan Cuadrado was covering all the bases again today in a non-playing capacity as he spoke to Jtv ahead of this weekend’s meeting with Palermo at Juventus Stadium.

    From Sunday’s crucial Serie A tie with the Sicilians to the secret behind his team’s excellent form, here are a selection of key quotations from the Colombian’s afternoon chat with the club’s official television channel:

    Sunday’s showdown with Sicilians

    “The Palermo game will be a difficult test as always and we’ll need to enter the match with the utmost determination to get the win. We’re playing at home, so it will be important to have the fans cheering us on. They’re our twelfth man.”

    Gigi the giant

    “We all know just how much Gigi Buffon brings to this team. He’s one of the best in the world and so knowing that he’s in goal for us fills us with confidence and pride. Not only does he contribute plenty on the pitch, but also a great deal in the dressing room.”

    True team effort

    “It’s like a family here. We’re also a tight-knit group off the pitch. All of us are pulling in the same direction and this is especially clear when it’s time to roll up our sleeves and do battle on the field. Nobody drags us back and everyone looks to give their all. We’ve individual qualities of course but it’s our togetherness that makes us the great side we are.”

    Allegri’s advice

    “Allegri is enjoying another great season at the helm. He asks me to essentially keep things simple, to do my defensive duties and, when I’ve time and space, to look to be creative in the final third. He feeds me with confidence and I’m always looking to improve, because this is football and you always need to keep raising your game.”

    A dream goal?

    “One day I’d like to score from an overhead kick. It’s not easy, but who knows!”
