"It's been a wonderful evening, full of emotions; an evening for Chiellini and Dybala. Giorgio has given a lot to football, with passion, a love for work. With Bonucci, Barzagli, Buffon and Marchisio, he introduced me to Juve, he helped me a lot. Paulo? He gave so much to Juve with passion and great class, his tears moved me, I'm lucky to have experienced this moment in a different way. I was lucky to experience these emotions. Tonight's draw is the emblem of the season, it would have been nice to secured a victory."
"I leave with joy and serenity, it was a decision that I made months ago and not weeks, because I have always said that I wanted to leave at a high level and I succeeded. This year has been difficult, but taking the matches well, at my level, gave me the push to make room for young people; Juve must restart and it is right that the youngsters take on responsibility, and fly alone. Now I will decide my future with my family."
