thumbnail Hello,

The Spain international is immensely proud of the Bianconeri's resilience, but he was reluctant to take too much praise for his fine back-heel goal in Reggio Emilia on Monday night

Juventus striker Fernando Llorente has hailed his side's fighting spirit after they came from behind to beat Sassuolo 3-1 to restore their eight-point lead at the summit of Serie A.

The Bianconeri now stand just one victory away from sealing a third straight Scudetto and the Spaniard, who scored in the win, is delighted with his team-mate's resolve.

"I found it a difficult game because I wasn't seeing much of the ball at certain points," he told the club's official website.

"But when that happens, you need to keep fighting until the end, just as we all did. And in the end it came off for us."

Llorente scored a sublime backheel to cap the victory and says service from his team-mates made it easy for him.

"It's not the first goal I've scored like that. I also got a few when I played for Athletic Bilbao. It was a good move and we need to keep getting crosses in the box to score more goals.

"I'm perfectly relaxed at the moment. It's more important to work with the team and we're working very well. We'll go for our objectives and then we'll see what happens."
