Emanuele Giaccherini is delighted to be making an impact with unbeaten Serie A leaders and Coppa Italia semi-finalists Juventus.
The midfielder was signed from Cesena in the summer as a squad player, but he’s been used frequently by boss Antonio Conte.
Giaccherini came off the bench to score in the 2-0 win at Atalanta on Saturday and he also netted in the 3-0 Italian Cup triumph over Roma on Tuesday.
“I work everyday to make sure I’m ready, just as all my teammates do,” said the 26-year-old. “That’s the secret of this Juventus side.”
The attacking midfielder gave his outfit the lead at the Juventus Stadium last night and they remained in control for the rest of the tie.
“The game was a difficult encounter,” he underlined. “We faced our opponents in the right way, scoring immediately, then closing them down before breaking on the counter.
“We’re going well in the championship and Coppa Italia – we hope to finish out in front in both competitions.”
