From pitchside at Continassa, Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli, now in his ninth season at the club explains why he feels that this Juventus team is the best that he has played in.
"The results are earned on the pitch. Of course, on paper it seems like Juve the strongest Juve in recent years, but that will all be decided at the end of the season." The defender added.
"It's good to start strong, because often the first games are the most difficult. We have new players who are getting used to this league, so we are happy to have started the season in this way."
Barzagli then spoke about the team's goals at the beginning of the season, "As always, we must fight on all front and aim for the top. We want to give it our all, as always, and in addition to Serie A and the Coppa Italia we will do our best in the Champions League."
Commenting on his recent Gaetano Scirea award he said, "I was proud to recently receive the award, and to also see my career compared to that of Gaetano. He was a symbol and an example of professionalism, especially off the pitch. I thank Mariella and Riccardo very much.
Finally, Juve's number 15 was asked what it was liked to play with Cristiano Ronaldo, "We tend to think of him as an extra-terrestrial, but he is a normal person who laughs and jokes with us, the group is very happy with his arrival."
