Posted on 14/10/2010


«When the public is so well behaved it is a plesure to train in front of them». For Simone Pepe finding the supporters on the stands in Vinovo, this afternoon was a welcome surprise. «It is a victory for football to see so many children on the side lines – continued Simone on Juventus Channel. Honestly, I don’t know how many teams in Italy allow supporters to watch the training sessions. There were eople who came even from Malta…This is a show of the fact the Juventus supporters are everywhere. Besides, if I’m not mistaken, there are 14 million in Italy and 72 million in the worls…».

Training in front of their supporters is a beautiful stimulus for the bianconeri, who on Sunday afternoon will be playing against Lecce: «It will be a difficult match. Playing aginst Inter, as we did in the last match, gives important motivations and some might think that playing against Lecce might be an easy match, but we know that it will not be so. We must confirm the signs of improvement shown against Inter». 

Besides the championship is wide open and Juventus showed they can have an important role: «In fact, Inter, also due to certain injuries, does not seem to be as strong as last year, we are improving, Milan made great signings, Lazio is first in the table, Roma will come back…It is a well fought tournament and anything can happen»
