The Bianconeri secured the three points when Mattia De Sciglio whipped in a cross from the left, Rodrigo Bentancur’s header bounced off Kean from point-blank range, redirecting it into the net past Rui Patricio.
“The important thing is that the ball went in, I didn’t really get to think about it very much,” confessed Kean on DAZN following the 1-0 victory.
“I was jumping and the intention was to nod it back across to the far post, so it went well.
“The crucial thing was to get the victory and bring the points home and that is what we did.”
The Italy international was used as a striker this evening alongside Federico Chiesa, but has been placed in several different roles along the attacking axis by coach Max Allegri.
“I can play more or less everywhere, so I just have to be ready when the coach asks me to do something.”
Kean was in the Juventus youth academy before his transfer to Everton, then impressed on loan at Paris Saint-Germain before returning to Turin.
“The experiences abroad really helped me and I want to go all the way with Juventus now.”
