Llorente reveals Italy ‘affinity’

Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente reveals “I still feel an affinity with Italian football and Juventus.”

Llorente joined Juve on a free transfer from Athletic Bilbao in 2013 and scored 27 goals for the Bianconeri in two seasons, helping them win successive Scudetti and reach the Champions League Final.

“I still feel an affinity with Italian football and Juventus,” he told Premium Sport after Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid on Tuesday.

“I’m sorry for their defeat to Lazio, but I hope they can win another [Serie A] title.

“My future back in Italy? I felt good in Italy, leaving many friends in Turin. Juventus were like a family to me, but for now I’m happy in the Premier League and I’m enjoying this result.”
