Former Manchester City striker discusses first impressions of life in Turin.
Juventus striker Carlos Tevez has revealed that he will have to work much harder than during his time in England, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Argentine international began training with his new club this week, and spoken about his first impressions of working under coach Antonio Conte.
Having laughed off speculation during the week that the club had deemed him overweight, Tevez has conceded that he will have to work particularly hard if he is to make his time in Italy a success.
“I found a team ready to target an historic third consecutive Scudetto, but who are also capable of making an impact on the Champions League,” he told Gazzetta.
“What do I say after my first day of training? Well, I’ll certainly have to run much more than in England…
“Feeling the passion of the fans is important for me. I came here to work hard and it took me just half a session to realise I’ll have to work harder than in England.”
The 29-year-old is expected to help the Bianconeri move to the next level in their bid to successfully dominate in Italy and conquer Europe.
Conte is notoriously strict in both his diet and fitness regimes, and it is become apparent that Tevez will likely have to adapt and get up to speed with the Italian tactician’s way of coaching.
Nevertheless, there is ample time for the Argentine to get into prime shape, and he will hope to become a major part of the club’s future, especially considering that they have now withdrawn their interest in Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic.
