Giorgio Chiellini has said he hopes the Bianconeri will carry forward their impressive consistency right until the end of the season after the side chalked up their 16th consecutive league win at Juventus Stadium this evening.
Antonio Conte’s men were under pressure to beat Livorno after Roma narrowed the gap at the summit of Serie A to just five points last night, but the challenge has turned out to be another hurdle comfortably overcome by those in the black and white stripes.
Speaking after the final whistle at Juventus Stadium, the 29-year-old began by praising this steady progress: “We’re showing impressive consistency – we’ve played so many games since mid-February.
“It wasn’t easy either today or Thursday having everything to lose. We did well, there’s still a long way to go but we’re ticking the matches off.”
With defensive injuries limiting opportunities for rest, Chiellini has been forced into almost constant action, but went on to say he’s happy with the way he and his team-mates have coped.
“I went from being sidelined for a month straight into playing all the time. Things are going well, and let’s keep moving forward like this, getting results. The team unit supports each individual.”
After defeating his former club, the defender’s attentions have already begun to focus on Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final second leg clash against Lyon. And it’s one that he’s fired up for.
“Definitely, our target is getting close. We want to achieve extraordinary things.”
