Di Maria: ‘The best team in Italy is Juventus’

Angel Di Maria says he joined Juventus because he’s played for the best club in all of the top five leagues and only Italy was missing. The Argentine agreed a reported one year deal with the Bianconeri and gave his first interview to Juventus TV and began by explaining what it means to come to Turin:

“[It means] everything, because I have been in every country, in the best team, and I was missing Italy. The best team in Italy is Juve, it is the biggest club and I was very excited, very eager to come.

“I knew that last year Juve couldn’t win the Scudetto or the Coppa d’Italia, and I think that the motivation to come and to be able to achieve everything with Juve was something very nice, and that’s why I said yes.

“For me it’s a new step in my career… from the moment I said yes, I’m seeing it on the first day, all the people here are like a family, all the time looking after you. That makes me very happy.

“I think the only thing I can promise the fans is my effort. My sacrifice, the mentality of wanting to win – and to be able to achieve as many titles as possible.

“I will always leave everything on the field, as I have always done. That will never be lacking.

“Hopefully we can win all the titles and we’ll all be very happy.”
