Barzagli: Juventus must show same hunger and determination as last year

The defender is looking to replicate last year's success in the new season, and stressed that it's crucial to keep working hard
Andrea Barzagli feels Juventus are heading the right way as they edge closer to the start of the 2012-13 Serie A campaign, but has urged his team-mates to remain hungry for more trophies.

The Italy international feels their determination was crucial to last year's accomplishments and wants to see more of the same in the new season.

"We weren't favourites when we set out last year but we believed in ourselves and we ran out as winners," Barzagli was quoted as saying on the official Juventus website.

"We just need to make sure we keep going out there with the same hunger and determination, otherwise you stop going forward.

"We're working really hard, the new lads have settled in well and the results are there for all to see."

Juventus take on Parma this weekend in their Serie A curtain-raiser.
