Chiellini’s words at the press conference before the first match of Champions League against Malmo (from Juventus.com):
There’s a lot of enthusiasm around the place, from myself, within the team and the city of Turin. I think we need to maintain that throughout this adventure. Rather than focusing on having to prove ourselves or erasing the disappointment of last season, we need to try and surprise people and achieve something big. We’re not expecting an easy win by any stretch of the imagination. We know that it’s going to be a tough game. We still bear the scars of last year and two years ago, from the results against Copenhagen and Nordsjælland. I think Malmo will be quite similar to those teams, given the likeness in the brand of football they play and their geographical proximity. In terms of Malmo’s players, I’m most familiar with Rosenberg because he’s played for his country, so I know all about him. They also have a lad who used to play in Italy with Palermo and then Novara, Mehmeti. He played here for a couple of years, I think. Aside from that, we’re studying their other players. We can win the match, but only if we show real desire, strong focus and great respect for our opponents.
