"But even after seeing the results [I have achieved with Juventus] you continue to put my name in brackets."
Iaquinta added: "This year we changed the mentality. We can also suffer, but in the end we win, and points against the provincial sides, like those obtained against Livorno, are fundamental.
"The credit goes to the team and the club, who bought players of quality in the summer, but also players with a certain strength on a mental level."
