Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio says he is not concerned with individual highlights, claiming his primary focus is collective success.

The Italy international found the net on Sunday to help Juve record a hard-fought 2-1 away win to Siena, but said he was more delighted with the victory than with his match-winning goal.

“Obtaining the three points is more important than scoring as far as I’m concerned,” Marchisio told the club’s website.

“It certainly was not an easy game against Siena. They gave us great difficulty. We managed to break the deadlock, only for them to find an equaliser.

“Then we upped the ante in the second half and came away with all three points. It is important to win games like this. Smaller sides are always very organised and Siena stuck to their game plan.

“It’s good that we have managed to end this heavy run of fixtures with a victory. If we had to provide an assessment of this recent spell, it would be very positive.”

Juventus resume Serie A action after the international break at home to Napoli, who share top spot on the table with Antonio Conte’s reigning champions.
