Juventus midfielder Hernanes has promised to “show his strength” and respond positively to criticism he received after Saturday’s defeat to Napoli.

The Brazilian arrived at Juventus Stadium following an €11million transfer from Inter but has struggled to settle into a deeper midfield role in recent weeks.

After his error was directly seized upon by Gonzalo Higuain to score Napoli’s second goal in a 2-1 win over the defending Serie A champions, Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri quickly substituted him.

However, in a show of defiance, the midfielder insisted he will come through the turbulent spell together with his team-mates.

“I worked so hard to get into a team like Juventus, I have not given up a centimetre by reaching this goal,” Hernanes posted on his Instagram profile.

“The other night the game went wrong and we are sorry for this. But I will show all my strength and I will honour this shirt and these colours together with my team-mates.”

After a dismal start to the new campaign Juventus occupy 15th position in the Italian top flight, just two points clear of the relegation zone.
