Juventus' Filippi: Bendtner he will get his chance

The coach maintained that the summer signing's opportunity will come, and stated that Roma remained close challengers for the title despite their defeat on Saturday
Juventus goalkeeping coach Claudio Filippi, who took over the press conference after the Bianconeri's 4-1 victory over Roma, spoke of his belief that Nicklas Bendtner will get a chance to prove his worth.

The trainer was quick to praise the Old Lady's collective spirit and togetherness and gave credit for the win over the Giallorossi to head coach Antonio Conte, who is currently serving his suspension.

"Nicklas Bendtner will eventually have his chance," stated Filippi at the post-match press conference.

"Juventus have a great group of strikers this season. Right now, we have several forwards that give us guarantees. They are rotated according to how they perform in training.

"We work hard during the week with Conte, so this victory belongs to him."

Despite the manner in which the Italian champions sent Zdenek Zeman's Roma packing, Filippi is refusing to dismiss the Giallorossi's title credentials.

"It's true we got off to a splending start, but we fought against a side who will nevertheless continue doing important things this season, continuously challenging for the top places."

Juventus now turn her attention to their Champions League fixture against Shakhtar Donetsk, after earning a credible opening day draw against fellow Group E heavyweights, Chelsea.
