After a tough start, Mattia De Sciglio is enjoying his best spell at Juventus having started the last four matches, all shutouts, playing all 90 minutes in three of those four.
It's a great moment for both the Italy international and his team-mates. Today "Desci" talked to the Sky and Mediaset microphones:
A MOMENT OF GROWTH
"Bologna was one of our best games this season. Things are going very well, both from a personal point of view and from the point of view of the team. We are all improving together, from game to game. We're compact when we need to defend and dangerous when we attack. Not conceding goals in many games gives us self-esteem and confidence, making everything easier."
A GREAT RAPPORT WITH THE MISTER
"Mr. Allegri has been important from the beginning. He has shown that he believes in me, as he had done while I was in Milan. It makes me work with a lot of calmness and confidence. When you're given confidence in your ability, you play your best."
A GREAT RESPONSE TO THE START OF THE SEASON
"Just because I have a "baby face" doesn't mean that I don't have an edge to my game and play with personality. I just think about letting my performances on the pitch do the talking. I have always stayed calm knowing that I needed to do a lot of work to get back to my best. That combined with the confidence shown in me by my coaches and team-mates have done the rest.
"I also want to thank the fans for the song they dedicated to me yesterday. It was a nice gesture and great to see the hard work I'm putting in on the field is being appreciated!"
