Pirlo: We are enthusiastic

Andrea Pirlo is looking forward to the Supercoppa Italiana against Napoli and congratulates Juventus on their transfer work this summer.

The midfielder arrived with his Juve teammates in China yesterday ahead of their Supercup meeting with last season’s Coppa Italia winners Napoli.

Ahead of that game, Pirlo spoke briefly to reporters and took the chance to talk of the belief that the work done in the transfer window has given the squad.

“We arrive here with great enthusiasm. We have many fans in China and we are very keen to win the Supercoppa,” began Pirlo today.

“The club has done well in the summer market, there has been some excellent work and I think that we can play in the Champions League with the ambition of advancing out of the group stages.”

The team are facing the prospect of being without Coach Antonio Conte for next season through suspension, for his alleged role played in the betting scandal.

“We’re just thinking about the field and we are concerned only with doing our job.”
