THE COACH'S WILL TO WIN
"We are here to win - said Andrea Pirlo -. Napoli are a strong side, they have shown it since Gennaro Gattuso's arrival last season. They are a technical team that likes to play the ball. We will have to be good at attacking their defence and taking advantage of the opportunities that arise. We looked at various solutions this morning, they have a narrow backline that play across the defence. This Super Cup comes after a bad defeat in the league and we want to bounce back by taking the trophy home. The match at San Siro must be forgotten and we must have a clear head." The Juventus coach then spoke about some individual players: "Wojciech Szczesny will play in goal. Merih Demiral has been carrying some physical problems for a few weeks and has had a relapse, so he is not present. I will decide tomorrow whether or not to start Dejan Kulusevski."
THE SUPER CUP IN THE OPINION OF DANILO
Next to Coach Pirlo at the press conference today was Danilo: "Against Napoli we have to do something different than at the San Siro and that is to have more concentration and be better from the first minute up until the 90th. In these games you need to have courage. We have already shown that we have a strong team. We are lucky that a few days after the defeat against Inter we have another opportunity to play against an opponent who has a good squad and a good coach. Playing every three days is not easy, but we are trying to improve. I'm sorry for the absences that we have in the defence, but we are prepared for the match. Giorgio Chiellini is back and there is also Leonardo Bonucci. We are ready."
