      Alex Sandro looks ahead to an intriguing season, five days from Juventus’ return to domestic action against Sassuolo this weekend

      Despite picking up maximum points from the opening two matches of their fifth consecutive Serie A title defence, Alex Sandro and Juventus are hungry for more, much more.

      With the majority of the Bianconeri squad dotted around the world representing their respective national teams, the Brazilian wing-back meanwhile has been working hard in Vinovo to be ready for this Saturday’s encounter with Sassuolo at Juventus Stadium and taking the opportunity to share his early season thoughts with Jtv, the club’s official channel.

      From this weekend to Europe and beyond, here are the pick of Alex’s key quotes: 

      Early season report

      “I’m in great shape and I’m feeling better with each day of training at the moment. That’s just how things work here; everyone works hard and everyone goes from strength to strength as the season goes on.

      “It’s true, we’ve opened with two very tough matches. Starting well is never easy and games at the start of the campaign are difficult to read. We persevered against Fiorentina and Lazio by staying patient and fighting together and we must continue to do that from now until May, winning the big matches when it counts.”  

      Eyes on the prize(s)

      “Our ambition is to play our best and to try and be successful on all fronts. We have Sassuolo to deal with this weekend in the league, a side who always push you all the way, but we’ve been working hard over the international break to ensure we’re ready for whatever they throw at us.

      “Meanwhile in Europe, our goal is to have a great Champions League campaign. The squad has shown just how much the competition means to us. We’ve got quality throughout the team but all we can do is focus on each game as it comes and be aware that, in Sevilla, we are coming up against a very tricky first opponent.

      “As for me, I want to win everything with Juve and be successful here for a very long time.” 

      Friends reunited

      “We’ve made some excellent signings: the new boys are already part of the family and I’m delighted to see my good friend (Juan) Cuadrado back with us.”
