Giaccherini calms Juve expectations

Emanuele Giaccherini has looked to cool the enthusiasm surrounding Juventus after their scintillating start to the season.

The Old Lady began life in their new stadium with a convincing 4-1 win over Parma which has fuelled expectations of a competitive campaign.

"We'll see what we achieve at the end of the season," the summer signing who started the game noted.

"We have to take things slowly before making definite judgements. We just have to take it one game at a time and only concentrate on what we do on the field of play."

The left-sided midfielder moved to Turin after just one season in top-flight football with Cesena in 2010-11.

"The step up from Cesena to Juventus is a big one, but I hope to make it," he continued.

"I have to admit that when I stepped on to the field of play my legs were shaking a bit, but now it is up to me to demonstrate that I am worthy of Juventus."
