Giorgio Chiellini: 'Juventus now refocusing on Serie A'

  • 3 month ago

Juventus skipper Giorgio Chiellini has insisted that his side will be putting their recent Champions League victory over Tottenham Hotspur behind them as they now refocus on Serie A.

The Old Lady came from behind at Wembley during the week thanks to goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala, as Massimiliano Allegri made some key tactical changes to help overcome Spurs.

"We certainly hope to take over the top spot, maybe even this weekend if only for a few hours," Chiellini, who was a standout performer midweek, told the club's official website.

"They will be three complicated games against physical teams at the end of a busy period. We will need all of our physical and mental energy and need to concentrate well. We need to put the Champions League behind us because the next few days are very important."

Juventus are currently in the midst of a battle to usurp Napoli at the top of the Serie A standings.
