    New arrival Norberto Murara Neto is excited for the start of a new chapter in Turin

    Norberto Murara Neto is confident that moving to Juventus will continue his upward trajectory and that he is at the right club to move his career forward.

    After four breakthrough years in Florence, featuring appearances in the final of the 2014 Coppa Italia and in the semi-finals of last season’s Europa League, Neto is already a player with big game experience and with the ambition to match.

    Attracted by Juventus’ winning mentality and the potential of the new-look squad, the Brazilian believes that Turin is the perfect place to take his career to the next level.

    Speaking to the media at Juventus Center in Vinovo today, the summer signing began: “Right through the organisation there is an expectation and desire to win and that is a mentality that I share. The time came, after a fantastic stay in Florence, for me to take my career into my own hands and I’ve done that by joining a team of this quality.” 

    The 25-year-old, whose consistency for the Viola made him one of the most sought after goalkeepers in Serie A last season, is not afraid of bold moves having left his native Brazil for Fiorentina in 2011, and knows that when the opportunity arrives to make the step up, it must be taken.

    “There is no doubt that Juventus was the right choice for me. Since I arrived in Italy my ambition has been to play at the very highest level, so when Juventus came in for me my mind was made up.”

    Watching his father, also a goalkeeper, as a youngster in his native Brazil inspired Neto to don the gloves himself and on the day of his official presentation as a Juventus player, he paid tribute to the man whose guidance has brought him this far.

    “My father was a goalkeeper and he has given me everything I need to pursue my dreams, he is the reason why I am here today.”

    There is no questioning the Brazilian’s resolve and having made a career-defining step up once already - leaving South America for Italy - it is clear that the Bianconeri’s summer arrival will stop at nothing to make his stay in Turin a successful one.
