Alessio pleased with Juve intensity

By Football News



Juventus assistant coach Angelo Alessio has spoken of his joy after watching his side cruise to a 6-1 away win over Pescara on Saturday.

Juve bounced back from last week's loss to Inter Milan in style, with a Fabio Quagliarella hat-trick along with goals from Arturo Vidal, Sebastian Giovinco and Kwadwo Asamoah ensuring an easy victory.

"We had the right approach," Alessio told reporters after the match.

"We took the game to our opponents and we were determined and aggressive right from the very off. And what a game it was.

"We played with intensity and set about our opposition both tonight and in midweek (in their 4-0 win over Nordsjaelland). These are the strengths that mark this team."

Alessio went on to state that Quagliarella will not necessarily be part of the team to play against Lazio on November 17, despite the striker's hat-trick

"Fabio has done well on several occasions, and scored three today," he said. "There's no heirarchy as far as team selection is concerned.

"Antonio (Conte, coach) makes his decisions based on what he sees in training."

Juventus sit at the top of Serie A, four points ahead of second-placed Inter, who play on Sunday.
