      Giorgio Chiellini stresses that the Bianconeri are heading in the right direction after securing their ninth straight league win

      After sealing nine consecutive Serie A wins, the Bianconeri are now firmly nestled among the top teams in the table, but Giorgio Chiellini preferred to talk about the strength of character that has gradually grown within the side after a difficult start to the season.

      Speaking to journalists after Juventus’ 2-1 win over Sampdoria, the experienced defender began: “There are four of us there battling at the top and now there’s just one team ahead of us, but we’ve not achieved anything yet. We’re getting better with every game, we’ve rediscovered our solidity and identity.

      “In the first two months of the season we lacked the fighting spirit and togetherness that had seen us almost conquer Europe, but since the Sassuolo match, we’ve come on leaps and bounds as a squad. It’s the responsibility of us experienced players to help the new faces adapt and credit to them for having followed our lead.”

      Turning his attentions to Sunday’s win at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Chiellini admitted that there were areas to work on after Sampdoria’s late rally might have earned them a draw from trailing 2-0 in the second half.

      “It’s a crucial victory and we deserved the points, despite risking to not see out a match that we looked in control of.

      “Today the team did a lot of good things, but a few errors also crept in that, on another day, could have been costly.”
