Andrea Pirlo is hopeful Juventus can use this week’s Supercoppa Italiana success to get their Serie A title defence back on track.
Juve saw off Napoli 2-0 in Reggio Emilia on Wednesday through goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata as Pirlo claimed his first piece of silverware as a coach.
The nine-in-a-row Scudetto champions have struggled in the league this term, however, and sit 10 points adrift of pace-setters Milan with a game in hand on the leaders.
After losing 2-0 away to Inter last time out in the top flight, Pirlo accepts that Juve must start showing more consistency if they are to retain their title.
“All matches are different but we need to continue entering the field with the attitude we had the other evening,” he said at a news conference ahead of Sunday’s home meeting with Bologna.
“If we have this desire and concentration, positive results will come. Winning a trophy doesn’t change my enthusiasm for the job. I have felt the same since day one.
“Winning a trophy does not change anything – I want to win others. I know we have to improve and continue growing as a team.
