Alex Sandro admits Juventus “need to find our form physically, mentally and technically, but we’re on the right track” after beating Parma.
The reigning champions opened the Serie A season with a 1-0 victory at the Stadio Tardini, decided by Giorgio Chiellini.
“It was a difficult match, in my view a very physical one and at the end it took a lot out of both teams, which is natural in the opening round.
“We need to find our form physically, mentally and technically, but we are on the right track,” the Brazilian told Sky Sport Italia.
“Our strategy when 1-0 up was to keep the ball more and make Parma run after it.”
Juve Coach Maurizio Sarri is back in Turin undergoing treatment for pneumonia.
“I think Sarri will be pleased to start with three points, but we must also improve a great deal going forward.”
