“I’ve joined the biggest club in Italy and one of the top four or five in Europe. I’ve worked hard but I don’t feel like I’ve made it yet.” That was how Mattia Perin introduced himself to Juventus on 11 July 2018. It was the beginning of a new adventure for Perin, after many years spent gracing other stages and establishing a reputation as one of the most reliable Italian keepers around. And it’s a reputation he’s backed up in Turin – consistency is without doubt one of his greatest attributes.
#W8NDERFUL - Mattia Perin
Learning from the great masters. Masters like Claudio Filippi, a custodian of the secrets of the position. Perin’s first day went something like this: “Hi. I’m Mattia and I’m here to learn how to win.”
The art of transformation. A mask, an outfit or even a tiny bit of detail can make a world of difference. Take this example: one haircut and the Mattia Perin we thought we knew is gone forever!
The final stages of Bologna v Juventus. Two saves in a few seconds to secure the win. Three points, applause, job done.
