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.”
