Juventus are still not firing on all cylinders, but Arturo Vidal says they are ready to retain their Serie A crown.
The Old Lady won the title last season by going through the League campaign unbeaten and they’ll start the defence of the Scudetto against Parma at the weekend.
“We are still missing a bit from being at our best, from being in championship form,” the Chilean said after the 3-2 win over Milan.
“The match against Milan was an important one ahead of the new term. We’re ready for the start of the season and we’re ready to have a go at winning the championship again.”
Vidal, a 2011 signing from Bayer Leverkusen, scored the second in the 3-2 victory over the Diavolo at San Siro last night.
