When a dream becomes a reality... This is the case for the Bianconeri’s new defender Merih Demiral, who finds himself at Juventus after an impressive rise in his career. After joining Sassuolo at the beginning of the year, the full-back now finds himself living his dream for Italy's most successful club and he couldn’t be more excited.
“I'm very happy to be here. I know that Juventus is a very important team and for me it's an honour to be here. I hope to adapt myself to the new environment here as soon as possible. It took a lot of effort for me to get here, but it's all the result of the work I've put in. It's a dream come true to be here."
The 21-year-old then covered an array of topics, during his press conference:
"I always give it my all when I step onto the pitch and the fans appreciate this. I want to reach my best form as soon as possible so that the fans can appreciate me even more. It's true that Juventus have some of the best players in the world, especially in defence. Therefore, I hope to be in my best form and fight for a starting place.
“To be the first Turkish player to play for Juventus is an absolute honour for me and I will try to be a role model here."
