Bonucci on the defensive

At a time when Juventus have started scoring for fun, Leonardo Bonucci has underlined the strength of their defence.

“Our success at the back is an added value,” the former Bari centre-back stated after Sunday’s 4-0 win at Novara.

“I think our unbreachable defence is one of the secrets of this Juventus side.”

The Bianconeri have conceded just once in their last nine League games, scoring 23 in the process, which has helped them to a three-point lead at the top of the table with three games remaining.

“We spoke in the dressing room and knew it would be another tough game like we faced in Cesena,” he said of yesterday’s win.

“We took to the field with the right focus, possessing the hunger of those who want to win.

“We instantly managed to get things going in our favour, and did well to immediately put the game to bed.

“It was a good victory that’s come from a great team, a great Coach and a great project. We’ll now think ahead to Wednesday, because we still haven’t achieved anything.”

The Turin giants will entertain Lecce in midweek.
