Fernando Llorente is struggling to win over Juventus coaching staff.

The Spain striker arrived out of shape from Athletic Bilbao this summer.

Gazzetta dello Sport says he has been so disappointing that Llorente will be dropped for the first official match of the season.

Juventus challenge Lazio for the Italian Super Cup in Rome on August 18 and the likely starting strikers are going to be Carlos Tevez and Mirko Vucinic.
