With his fifth Serie A goal of the season tonight against Atalanta, Fernando Llorente gave his Christmas present to the Bianconeri fans from the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
The Spaniard made it look easy as he turned his marker with great agility and fired into the corner, but, when speaking to reporters after the final whistle, he began by saying the encounter was anything but simple: “It was very hard, because Atalanta are very strong, especially at home. We stuck to the game plan throughout. Now we can enjoy our holidays in order to prepare as well as we can for Roma.”
He concluded with an assessment of his Juventus career so far since his arrival from Bilbao in the summer.
“I’m improving and happy to play for a great team. Everyone works for each other and helps out their team-mates.”
