Peluso: Juventus must always win

The utility player has made it clear that the reigning champions always aim to win and is pleased with their return to form in recent weeks
Federico Peluso has stressed that winning is all that matters at Juventus and has hailed head coach Antonio Conte's role in the club's success.

The Bianconeri remained unbeaten in Serie A last term as they beat AC Milan to the Scudetto and they once more sit atop of the table this season as they aim to successfully defend their title.

"There’s the requirement to win every game at Juventus and it’s something you feel both in training and during the matches themselves," Peluso was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"I think the manager is the best at conveying this way of thinking to the team."

The Old Lady struggled to find their best form earlier in 2013, but they have returned to winning ways in recent weeks, much to the delight of Peluso.

He added: "The Champions League win over Celtic gave us self-confidence. I don’t think the other games took the wind out of our sails. We’ve always had the right mentality.

"A difficult moment in the season is something that can happen and we’ve come through it."

Juventus currently hold a six-point lead over Napoli in Serie A after the pair's 1-1 draw at Stadio San Paolo on Friday.
