    The state of Juventus approaching the next hectic burst of Serie A and Champions League fixtures in the coming six weeks? According to Hernanes: confident, focused and eager to go again.

    From personal form and earning the trust of the boss to the winning mentality that prevails in the Bianconeri dressing room, the key quotes from Hernanes' media meeting with Sky and Mediaset are as follows:

    Confidence high

    “I’m pleased to be getting a run in the side and for the constant backing I receive from the coach. I feel in good form, I was aware all long that I could contribute effectively to the team and the fact that I am featuring regularly is a real sign of trust and a boost for me.”

    Winning mentality

    “The atmosphere in the camp here strikes everyone instantly, and it was something that immediately made an impact on me when I first arrived last season and continues to do so now.

    “Even if you’ve experienced winning dressing rooms before, this one really pushes you to give that little bit extra no matter what. As a result, we’re putting together a very strong squad with a great attitude.”

    Pescara the priority

     “We need to be aware that Saturday’s match against Pescara will be far from simple. Some of the guys have been all around the world during the international break and that will always have an effect but all that matters is winning by any means possible with the crowd right behind us.

    “Criticism of how we’ve played so far this season don’t really bother me since these kinds of debates are subjective: what counts is our points tally.”

    …then Sevilla

     “Our full focus is on the this weekend after which we can begin laying our plans for beating Sevilla and ensuring we finish top of the group. It will be one of the most important fixtures of the campaign and if we don’t win, our destiny will be out of our own hands.”
