Llorente on Tevez 'understanding'

Fernando Llorente has praised teammate Carlos Tevez, and admits that he has a new understanding of fitness after joining Juventus.

The Spanish striker joined the Bianconeri last summer, signing on a free from Athletic Bilbao, and forming a tremendous partnership with the Argentine.

And the Roja international has been moved to commend his goalscoring ally, as well as commenting on Antonio Conte’s training methods.

“I’ve never trained as hard as I have since I’ve been here,” he told Hurra Juventus.

“I have a great understanding with Carlitos. He is a true warrior on the pitch.

“He defends the ball so well. He might be small in stature, but even the best defenders have difficulty getting the ball off him.”
