Juventus don't need Alexis – Vucinic

The Montenegrin has rebuffed talk that his club need to sign a high-profile attacker to be competitive after their 4-0 aggregate loss to Bayern Munich

Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic believes that his club do not need to bring in Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez.

The Bianconeri‘s failure to score in both Champions League quarter-final encounters against Bayern Munich prompted calls for the club to sign a new striker, but the Montenegrin feels they already have enough firepower.

“I’d just like to remind people that this group has been doing great things for the past two years,” he told Sky Sport.

“Sanchez is a great striker, but Juventus have the best attacking line-up and are already competitive as things stand.

“It really annoys me to hear people say that I play without desire. I train every day with commitment and try to give 100 per cent in each workout.”

Antonio Conte’s men resume their Serie A charge against Lazio and the former Roma forward has urged his team-mates to put their 4-0 aggregate loss to Bayern behind them with a good performance.

“The result from the two games shows there’s currently a difference between us and them, above all during the first leg in Munich, where we played below our capabilities. Later, we tried to give everything in Turin.

“We’ll put in a typical Juventus performance on Monday, playing with the same desire displayed up until now.”

Juve and Lazio kick off at 20:45CET at the Stadio Olimpico on Monday.
