It was a strong return to the lineup for Daniele Rugani making a key intervention in a two-on-one situation to stop Obi and Belotti in Sunday's derby win at Torino and the Tuscan defender talked to the Sky Sport microphones today about it and much more:
"I had to make a choice. I could show Obi onto his weaker right foot or force a pass to Belotti who I was in a better position to mark," said Rugani. "In the end, he passed it and I was able to come back and stop the chance. It was a strong play that I'm satisfied with."
As with any Juventus season, the goals are high and it's no different for Rugani.
"Personally, this year's goal is to improve, play more and have a bigger role in the team as I hope to help us win more trophies. Of course for the team, our goal is to win every competition," said Rugani. "Serie A is the main goal, but so is Coppa Italia and Champions League. We're still alive in all three competitions and will do our best going forward. The next 20 days will be a huge part of the season."
