Chiellini hails aggressive Juventus

Giorgio Chiellini is delighted that the real Juventus turned up in the 2-0 win over Genoa on Sunday.

The Old Lady have had a problematic start to the season and went into the Rossoblu tie following defeats at Fiorentina and Real Madrid.

“We analysed everything over the past few days and saw that certain things could have gone differently,” the centre-back commented.

“But I can say that I saw the right spark in Madrid and today we once again saw another Juventus, ruthless and aggressive, just as the Coach wants.

“We started with the right anger, the right aggression and swarmed Genoa in the first half. Only an inspired Mattia Perin performance [in goal] prevented us from adding to our tally.

“It was a true Juve performance. Now we’ll be confident in approaching Wednesday’s game against Catania.”

The Old Lady have dropped just five points in Serie A this season, but they remain adrift of leaders Roma who have a 100 per cent record after nine games.
