2-goal Chiesa hails Juventus teammates Ronaldo, Dybala

Federico Chiesa was delighted with his brace for Juventus in victory at AC Milan in midweek.

However, he was also quick to deflect praise to his teammates.

“More than anything else, it's the continuity of performance," he said. “Even if you don't score, you must play well, you have to give everything.

“And the goals are the result of this. The coach asks me to throw myself into the spaces because players like [Paulo] Dybala and Cristiano [Ronaldo] see things that the others don't."

Chiesa admitted he has felt the 'greater responsibilities' at Juventus.

“They ask for something more from you," he said. “The responsibilities are greater. I'm always generous on the pitch, I always try to help the team even in defence.

“I'm very happy, because in the first half, when they attacked us, the team suffered together.

“Today is a great collective result, we are really happy."
