      Having enjoyed a tremendous first half of the season, the Uruguayan spoke about his development and Juve’s return to competitive action

      Rodrigo Bentancur is ready to get going once again after the post-Christmas break. “It was important to have some time off, to rest up and spend time with the family, but now we’re focused on winning our next game,” he told Juventus TV.

      The midfielder had an extraordinary first half of the season, improving game after game. Of Juve’s 25 matches in Serie A and the Champions League, he appeared in 19 and started 14. The Uruguayan also notched up two goals, both scored away from home.

      “I’m happy about the two goals but I hope to score more,” he continued.

      “I still need to improve in the passing phase, such as trying to play in Cristiano Ronaldo, but also when it comes to taking up positions in front of the defence, which the boss often reminds me of.


      “As for our upcoming clashes, we’re focused on Bologna but then straight after we’ll need to think about the match against AC Milan and the Super Cup, which is the first target we need to reach.”
