Claudio Marchisio says the Juventus players are quickly adjusting to new coach Antonio Conte's system.

Although Conte uses a 4-4-2 which was employed by previous Coach Gigi Del Neri, he has different ideas of how the side should play.

“We have certainly got better, we were in good shape and concentrated,” he told the side’s website after the 1-0 victory against Club America. “This win is important for morale.

“As well as the win, it was important what we achieved tonight. We are looking to change our style of play and mentality.

“The Coach never wants us to lose the ball and even when we are in difficulty we have to just pass it back to the goalkeeper.

“We did that tonight, perhaps by taking risks, but we passed the ball around and switched play from one side to the other quickly. We’re improving and this progress has to be noted.”
