New Juventus striker Fernando Llorente says he’ll continue to give his all for Athletic Bilbao despite the situation he finds himself in.
The Spanish international has mainly been used as a reserve this term after refusing to sign a new contract with his outfit.
He’ll now join the Italian champions on a free transfer at the end of the season once his present agreement has expired.
“It is hard when you are not given a lot of space in the team,” he told Tuttosport. “However, I understand the situation and the choices of boss Marcelo Bielsa.
“The only thing that I can do is train to my maximum.”
Llorente was given a rare start at the weekend and he grabbed his second La Liga goal of the campaign in the 1-1 at Deportivo.
“Playing was a surprise and it did me well,” added the 28-year-old. “I’m getting better and I’m training to reach 100 per cent.
“I’m happy that my goal helped the team.”
