Ferrara praises Juventus spirit after victory over Atalanta

Juventus boss Ciro Ferrara praised his players after their 5-2 thumping of Antonio Conte's Atalanta.

Mauro Camoranesi struck twice, with David Trezeguet, Diego and Felipe Mello all getting on the scoresheet.

“In recent games, apart from the one with Napoli, I'd say Juventus have notched up a positive run of results and performances,” said Ferrara.

“It was a tough game and some concern was understandable when Atalanta twice got back into it, but we kept our cool and I am very satisfied.

“It is a system that forces our opponents to go for the long ball and that means risking a one-on-one sometimes, but all our defenders are internationals so it's a risk worth taking.

“Those were the only two shots on goal from Atalanta, so we weren't really under pressure throughout. There was a distraction and the second goal was just stunning, so not much we could do about that.”
