Llorente: 'A very tough game'

Fernando Llorente confessed “it was a very tough game” after giving Juventus the late victory over Udinese.

“I am happy, as it was a very tough game with so many chances, but we couldn’t find a way through,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“At the end I managed it and I’m very happy. We had to win, we achieved it – albeit late and after a real struggle.”

This was Juve’s sixth consecutive victory with six clean sheets and allowed them to go three points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

Llorente netted his fourth goal of the League season in an unusual atmosphere, as 12,200 children were in the stands to fill in for the banned ultras in the Curva Sud and Nord.

“It was wonderful to see so many children in the stands. It was hard for me to expect such a good start to the season. I am working to do better every day.”
