Matthijs de Ligt has come full circle at Juventus. From being of a fan of the Old Lady as a youngster, to scoring an important Champions League goal against the Bianconeri, to now, finally, signing for the club. For him, it’s a dream come true to join the Italian Champions, while it’s also a dream realised for the fans, who have rejoiced in having one of Europe’s best centre-backs join the fray of top-class defenders at the club.
"The photo of me in a Juventus shirt was taken when I was about six or seven, at that time Fabio Cannavaro was a defender that I admired, “he revealed when asked about the image he posted of him as a youngster in the black and white jersey. “I always had a good feeling about Juventus and I've always been a fan.
"I'm 19, I can still improve and I want to do that. It's important to work hard every day and to learn and I hope to become a better player," he added. "We want to win them all: this is the mentality of Juventus."
