Ventura: 'Ferocious' Bari for Juve

Bari already beat Juventus once this season and Giampiero Ventura asks his men to try it again “with ferocious determination and belief.”

They opened their campaign with a shock 1-0 victory at the Stadio San Nicola and now visit Turin in a desperate bid to climb off the foot of the table.

“From now until the end of the season we need humility, ferocious determination and belief,” said the Coach.

“All the rest is just talk. Up until now we have talked too much and done very little. All that counts now is the result on the field.”

Bari have been dealing with an injury crisis, but brought in reinforcements during the transfer window including Stefano Okaka, Gergely Rudolf and Kamil Jacek Glik.

“I am fairly happy, but we still need a few additions. The new arrivals must bring a breath of fresh, positive air to the team mentality.

“Juventus will be angry at their defeat to Napoli, but it changes nothing for us. We have to pick up at least 25 points to be safe.

“We don't care who the opponent is, because if we beat Juve and then lose five on the trot, it's a bad result.”
