Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic pleased with double for victory over Sassuolo

Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic was happy with his brace in victory over Sassuolo.

Juve kicked off their season with a 3-0 win on Monday night.

“I worked all summer, I am not yet at 100 per cent because I had an issue to deal with that was not easy to get over, this is the second 90-minute game I've played since the end of last season," Vlahovic told DAZN.

“I am working to get back to 100 per cent, so I can be at the disposal of the team and help achieve more victories.

“It's an incredible sensation to play with (Angel) Di Maria, it's so pleasing to work with such champions and I thank him for the assist. He had an extraordinary game."

Filip Kostic also made his debut off the bench and Vlahovic added: “We play together for Serbia, so it's nice to have him here. We're creating a really nice atmosphere in the squad. This is just the start, we won the first game, but we need to keep going with calm and confidence.

“The team comes first and foremost. If Juventus were to win the Scudetto and I was not the Capocannoniere, I certainly wouldn't complain!"
