Fernando Llorente: I need more time

Fernando Llorente says he just needs a bit of time to settle into life as a Juventus player as he still seeks his first goal in a Bianconeri shirt.

Fernando Llorente is looking forward to playing with Carlos Tevez
Fernando Llorente joined Juventus from Athletic Bilbao.

The Spain international striker joined the Old Lady in the summer, arriving on a free transfer from Athletic Bilbao.

But after several weeks of pre-season training with the Serie A champions, Llorente admits he is still getting to grips with the new style of play and the demands of coach Antonio Conte, although he denies that the Juve coach is unhappy with his progress.

“I just need more time to get used to the new way of working,” he said. “I’ve got to say, though, that I’ve been welcomed here very well. The coach has used me in the attack of a 3-5-2 formation so far and I’m doing things I had never done with Athletic, so I’ll need time to understand what the coach wants from me.

“I need more time to find the right feeling with my team-mates, but it’s not true that Conte isn’t happy with me. He’s never said that to me. In fact, he’s satisfied with the work I’ve done so far.”

Llorente's departure from Athletic was tainted by the boos which overshadowed his final game for a side he had represented 314 times, and for whom he had scored 110 goals.

Nevertheless, he feels leaving the club he had played for since the age of 17 and moving to Juve was still the right move to make, while he also believes it will help him secure a place in the Spain squad for next summer’s World Cup.

“I’m delighted to be back in the fold for Spain,” he told Cadena Ser. “I still think, after all the controversy over the end of my time in Spain, that I’ve chosen the right club to come to.”
