Benatia: The Juve difference…

Medhi Benatia says ‘Juventus don’t ask you to be nice or play good football but to win’ as he eyes the Treble with the Bianconeri.

Benatia’s first season at Juve yielded a domestic double, and the Morocco defender believes his side have what it takes to go one better this term.

“At the start, everything seems uphill because there’s so much sacrifice and you have to give 110 percent every day, but now I feel good,” he told Tuttosport.

“Juve don’t ask you to be nice or play good football, but to win. This is the mentality that I’ve also tried to transfer to my Morocco.

“Real Madrid? It’ll be my first time at the Bernabeu. As for [Achraf] Hakimi, who plays for Real, I’d tell him that we’re a different team to last year.

“Still, he’s a rising star. You don’t play for Real at 20 years of age if you have no talent.

“Winning everything is a stimulus, we’ll try to make it happen and then we’ll think about the World Cup.

“For now, I’m focused on my club because if I want to have a good World Cup, it all goes through Juventus.

“The priority remains the Scudetto and then the Champions League, which is our dream and that of all our fans.”
