Sissoko hails ‘new Juve’ under Zac

Posted on 04/02/2010


Momo Sissoko has faith that “there is a new atmosphere at Juventus and Alberto Zaccheroni is a man who really knows football.”

The new Coach was drafted in following Ciro Ferrara’s dismissal and the debut was a 1-1 home draw with Lazio.

“There is a new atmosphere, everyone wants to prove to the Coach they can play and Zaccheroni is a man who really knows football,” said Sissoko.

“It’s true that when he arrived he found a team that was a little wiped out psychologically, but I am certain we are emerging from the crisis and will prove that in Livorno.”

The former Liverpool midfielder won’t be at the Stadio Picchi this weekend, as he must sit out a ban.

“Zaccheroni is a Coach of great experience, he won the Scudetto with Milan and talks to the players a great deal.

“We are working on tactics and he will certainly bring something new to the table. I expect a strong Juve against Livorno that will go out to win an important game for the future.”

The Bianconeri are currently in joint fifth place with Parma, who have a game in hand.

“We want to qualify for the Champions League, so that means finishing in the top spots. A year without that competition would not be good.”
