"Today for me, my family and also for my teammates is a very happy day. To the fans I would like to say that I will always give my best, as I have done so far, and to keep improving." These were the first words of Alex Sandro, after having signed the renewal of his contract that will tie him to Juventus until 2023. "In the years that I've been here I learnt the mentality of the club and of my teammates. Here we always work to win and this will never change."
In three seasons at Juventus, Alex Sandro has won three doubles (three Scudetti and three Coppa Italias). He has made a fundamental contribution to the cause with 18 assists and nine goals: "I'm happy when we win, if this happens thanks to my assists or goals I'm happy, but the most important thing is to win. I have all of the goals that I have scored in my heart, because it is not easy to score as a defender! But if I had to list one as my favourite, I would say the header I scored at the near post against Torino last year at home.
Alex Sandro is already looking ahead to the future and the next fixtures, with the match against Roma fast approaching and the Bianconeri's Champions League game against Atletico on the horizon: "Atletico are a tough team, physically strong and tactically well-prepared, but right now we are thinking of Roma. Playing against the Giallorossi is always a 'war'. We are prepared and I am convinced it will be a great match for players and fans."
