Martin Caceres has instantly recognised a difference between this Juventus and the one he previously played for in 2009-10.
The Uruguayan spent a season on loan at the club while he was with Barcelona and he returned to Turin last month after a deal was done with Sevilla.
“This is a different Juventus,” the stopper told Tuttosport. “There is an alternative spirit within the camp.
“Juve today are very strong and the squad has changed a lot given that there are just five players left from that spell.
“It’s really satisfying to be able to play alongside people like Alex Del Piero, Andrea Pirlo and Marco Borriello.
“We are ready to achieve great things this season.”
Juve have finished seventh in Serie A over the last two campaigns, but they are currently unbeaten so far this term.
They are top of Serie A and have a 2-1 first leg advantage in the semi-finals of their Coppa Italia tie with Milan. Caceres scored both in that San Siro win.
