Juventus Centre Back and Young superstar Matthijs de Ligt spoke exclusively with the “Rondo”. Here is the full translation of the interview with the Dutch channel.
“I think at one point we were fourteen points behind the leaders. Then we got the Scudetto out of our heads: we said we had to concentrate to get to the Champions League and since then we have been watching game by game. Inter, Milan and Napoli are continuing to lose points and now we are only seven points. A miracle should happen, but the situation already looks better than 13 games ago. ”
“We lost Ronaldo at the end of the summer and of course with his departure we also lose thirty goals. We could not immediately catch someone like Vlahovic because it was late. We certainly missed this at the beginning.”

“When I played against him I had already noticed how strong and technically good he was. And what really impressed me is his motivation to score, he almost called his teammates if he didn’t get the ball. I needed a striker. like him in front “.
“I have noticed that the club is giving me more and more responsibility. Now Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are often injured, so there is even more pressure on my shoulders, which I like. I realize that I can take on an important role “.
“We are still competing on three fronts and I am really enjoying it here. I have noticed that I learn more every week and I like this a lot. What Mino said already happened three months ago; so many things can change in this time .. . At the moment I am concentrating completely on this season. ”
