Llorente shares Trez mentality

Fernando Llorente is impressed with Roma and tells fans he has “the same mentality as David Trezeguet.”

The Spanish striker is expected to start Sunday night’s Scudetto showdown, which kicks off in Turin at 19.45 GMT. Click here for a match preview.

“The Giallorossi had a sensational start to the season and their form made it a bit difficult for us, but then we emerged and proved our great solidity,” Llorente told Sky Sport Italia.

“We want to put in a super performance against Roma. And that is exactly what we’ll do.”

Former Juve legend Trezeguet will be at the stadium to salute fans before kick-off tomorrow evening.

“We are certainly different players, but I have the same mentality as Trezeguet. We try to do our best by helping the team to win the League.

“David is a player who made history, whereas I have just arrived and still need to do so much in order to get his results.”

The Bianconeri’s campaign suffered a heavy blow with surprise Champions League elimination, but can be motivated by the fact the Europa League Final is at the Juventus Stadium in May.

“Juve can win the Europa League. It might not be at the same level as the Champions League, but I have experienced it and can say it’s not remotely easy. I want to win everything with Juve and am helping the team to achieve that.”
