Juventus defender Chiellini: Why Tevez knackered in preseason

Giorgio Chiellini isn't surprised Carlos Tevez is finding Juventus' preseason tough going.

The former Manchester City striker admits he's shocked by Juve's training methods.

Chiellini laughed: "Let's just say that at Juve we run a lot without the ball in training, which isn't so common abroad. In these two years Conte has increased the fitness work, so now we suffer less over long distances. For those who arrive, not being accustomed to certain rhythms, they do struggle."
