Matuidi: "I've grown a lot at Juve"
"There are many matches awaiting us, against good teams. We must be vigilant and attentive, as well as be mentally prepared for the challenges, starting from Saturday night. Fiorentina are strong at home and it is an intimidating atmosphere, they have a lot of quality and we know the rivalry between the two teams. To win we will have to play as we know how."
GOING GOOD IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
"We've done well, apart from the defeat against Manchester United. We are in first place and did what we had to do the other night. We are confident and we want to win in Switzerland to ensure top spot. We have big goals and ambition, but we must take it step by step. Maybe later on we could end up meeting PSG, I know them well and have many friends there."
THE BEST YEAR
"It's been the best year of my career. I moved to a team like Juventus, which for me is something very important and then I realised my childhood dream, to win the World Cup. For me it is a great moment which will remain in memory, my children talk about it every day and are proud of me."
"I arrived at a club that allows you to constantly improve, there are great players so you always give your best. I've learned a lot tactically, and I have also grown physically, exceeding my limits. The staff pushes me to improve and give everything I can always, by having this mentality you can achieve great things. After the international fixtures, Allegri made me rest and spend some time with my family. I needed it both physically and mentally, and it has done me a lot of good.
"Ronaldo has won everything in his career, I was impressed by the fact that despite this he still has a lot of hunger to win. He always wants to give more, every day and he gives us a lot, both on and off the pitch. I'm sure that he will help us to win titles and to do great things. He deserves the Ballon d'Or without a doubt, he had a great season last year, winning a lot, and if he doesn't win this year he will next year, thanks to the titles won with us."
