Optimism and serenity, this is the recipe of Gigi Buffon and Andrea Pirlo with four days before the first official commitment of the season. The Super Cup against Napoli is an important goal and Juventus are preparing with the particular reasons after the defeat of May in the Italian Cup final against Mazzarri’s team.
Today, between the morning workout and the one in the afternoon, Buffon and Pirlo took part in the presentation of the sponsorship agreement between Juve and a brand of watches. “We came here with great enthusiasm – Pirlo said – we have many fans in China and we are very keen to the Super Cup.” Then Andrea has looked forward: “The company has worked well in the market, there were excellent grafts and I think we can play in the Champions League with the right ambitions hoping to get to the bottom”. The two players have guaranteed that the story of Scommessopoli does not affect the team: “We just think to the field and we care about doing our job.” Buffon has recovered from the injury of hip and Saturday should be available: “There are normal aches and pains in the first period of preparation, but I think now the problem is solved.”
ON THE FIELD – Meanwhile in the morning, before the conference and the regista of the goalkeeper, Juve had trained at the Olympic Sports Center in Beijing. The team is very determined and eager to hit the first round. By midafternoon, when in Italy is still late morning, Juve will undertake the second session of the day: Despite the importance of this is still Super Cup preparation period and Conte does not want to completely slow down the pace because now the team lays the groundwork for the entire season.
