Alex Sandro has only been a Juventus player since mid-August, but you would not know it primarily by watching him play but also by hearing him speak.
The footballing side of things was made perfectly evident last night against Inter in the latest of a series of buccaneering and aggressive showings from the Brazilian and that of buying into Juve’s winning mentality would come this afternoon as the flying wing-back sat down with Sky Sports Italia to discuss what remains of the season ahead.
The context? This evening’s encounter between Fiorentina and Napoli at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence. While a Viola victory would indeed deal a decisive blow to the Bianconeri’s immediate title challengers, speculation over tonight’s result will be left purely to the supporters.
“Obviously Juventus fans will be hoping that Fiorentina do us a favour against Napoli tonight,” he began. “However for us as players, all we should do is think about our own results and our own performances.
“Juve are a huge club with a great history and subsequently we should be pushing to win every bit of silverware possible. Each new player that arrives here from elsewhere knows that they are a winning team and that they will fight to win every single game.”
