Federico Gatti, Juventus’ winter addition, chats to Tuttosport about a variety of topics, including his decision to join Juve.
ALL SURREAL – “It still seems all surreal to me. I try not to think about it too much because I am convinced that my future will pass from these last Serie B matches. From D to A, do you still think about it? Excellence. The companions of the years in the amateurs are my first fans, they are very proud of my climb. ”
THE BIGGEST EMOTION -“The day of the signing, when I went to the Continassa to sign my new contract. An indescribable feeling. The hardest part? Since January I have had everyone’s eyes on me and I can’t make mistakes either on or off the pitch. I have to continue like this. I’m sure I won’t sit down because the past experience of getting up at seven in the morning and working until the evening as a window maker has formed me “.
GROSSO – “He told me that Juventus changes your life and not to waste this great opportunity. Dreams? Of course, at least two. The first is to stay at Juventus for several years. I keep the second to myself, I’m superstitious. .. “.
WORDS OF ALLEGRI -“Allegri’s words gave me immense pleasure. They charge me and empower me even more. I will do my best to deserve my stay at Juventus. I never set limits and I never will. Dreams can always be realized. A few years ago I was a window maker, now I play in Serie B and next season I could share the locker room with champions like Vlahovic, De Ligt and all the others. I want to be a source of inspiration for the youngest: my story is proof that in life we must never give up “.
THE IDOLS – “Before moving to defence, which was my turning point, I played in midfield and had a weakness for Lampard, Gerrard, Taarabt and Nainggolan.”
DE LIGT -“We are talking about an extraterrestrial. When I was playing in Excellence, De Ligt was already a protagonist in the Champions League with Ajax and he was also the captain of the legendary Dutch club. He is a fantastic defender.”
LIKE BONUCCI AND CHIELLINI – “Let’s not joke! We’re talking about two monuments, professors of world football. I don’t even have a presence in Serie A, how can I compare myself to champions like them? I met Chiellini and Bonucci in January and it was fantastic: they welcomed them very well, and they were super nice. I want to learn a lot from them. ”
DYBALA – “It’s not up to me to judge, I’m the latest arrival. As far as Vlahovic is concerned, he looks truly phenomenal from the outside.”
