Tevez: Vucinic partnership works

Carlos Tevez is confident he can form a potent strike partnership with Mirko Vucinic at Juventus this season.

Boss Antonio Conte is set to field the duo at Sampdoria on Saturday given that Fernando Llorente, signed from Athletic Bilbao this summer, is struggling for form.

“I get on well with Vucinic,” the capture from Manchester City told Tuttosport. “He is a player who makes the difference.

“We only played for the second time together in Rome on Sunday and obviously we need to get to know each other better and refine our movements, but I’m already satisfied.”

Tevez and Vucinic were handed starting shirts in the 4-0 Italian Super Cup win over Lazio at the weekend.

“It was an excellent start to the season,” added the Argentine who scored in the rout. “But we have to remain focused and prepare well for the start of the championship.

“I feel in good shape even if I think that I will improve game after game.

“Our first objective here is to win the Scudetto again so that we can enter the history books. Then we can think about something else.

“The dream is to win the Champions League and we’ll look to do all that we can to make that happen.”
