Juventus Star Bremer Promises to Work on His Improvement

Marquee defensive signings Gleison Bremer has vowed to improve on any potential mistake he made as Juventus thrashed Sassuolo 3-0. Massimiliano Allegri’s side got their new Serie A campaign off to a flying start by avenging last season’s 2-1 defeat in this corresponding fixture. 

New boy in town, Angel Di Maria, opened the scoring midway through the first half with a sensational volley. Talismanic striker Dusan Vlahovic drew a penalty he converted on the stroke of halftime to hand Juventus a comfortable two-goal cushion at the break.

Vlahovic struck again in the early stage of the second half, picking up a delightful ball from Di Maria inside the box to kill the game off in the 51st minute. An overwhelming triumph over Sassuolo should help Juventus make mends after the club’s first trophyless season in over a decade.

Another good sign was that they held Sassuolo at bay for the first time in seven league matches. Bremer, who lined up with Leonardo Bonucci in their first competitive outing together, delivered an encouraging performance. A new-look centre-back pairing impressed on their Juventus debut.

Bremer arrived from Torino in a mega-money deal in the summer to replace departed captain Giorgio Chiellini. The Brazilian barely put his foot wrong against Sassuolo, giving Juventus fans hope that the glory days of ‘BBC’ (Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini) could be restored. 

In the post-match interview, Bremer promised to look back at his performance and displayed his happiness for contributing to a clean sheet. 

I haven’t seen anything yet, I’ll look back tomorrow. But not conceding a goal was a good sign,” he said, as relayed by Calciomercato. Based on Sunday’s game, Juventus supporters have every reason to look forward to this season.
