Llorente - JuventusJuventus striker Fernando Llorente has spoken of the importance of preparation for continued success this season.

The 29 year old Spaniard scored a first half hat-trick as Juventus ran riot in an 8-1 thrashing over an Indonesian Super League all-stars team on Wednesday.

“It’s important to get in shape as fast as possible, I think the attitude has been good by all. We must continue in this direction,” he told the club’s official website.

“Today [Wednesday] was a good workout, but we still have to improve in all senses because this year will be more difficult, all teams will want to win the Serie A and we need to prepare well, in view of the Champions League.”

This season the entire Juventus squad will be looking to improve upon a disappointing Champions League campaign after finishing third in a group containing Real Madrid, Galatasaray and Copenhagen. VIP Lounge
