The new Juventus midfielder Denis Zakaria introduces himself to the media and fans. During the presentation press conference he said: "I chose Juve because it is one of the clubs that has always made me dream. For me it is really a dream, I thought it was the right choice for my coach.
The impression was exceptional, the team is very strong. I immediately got on well with the players and the coach, the atmosphere is good. A comparison with Germany? It's a big step forward. My father's favorite team was Juventus.
start, I don't stop here, I always want to improve, certainly an important step in my career but I want to keep growing. It has always been a goal to significantly increase the number of my goals, being at Juve can be a good opportunity.
I'm a natural midfielder, without a precise position. Physically I am fine, I have already trained twice, I am starting to take measurements and if the coach needs me I am ready to take the field. If I had to describe myself I would say that I love playing in forward, press, retrieve the ball and defend.
I would define myself as a complete player. I expected to leave Borussia but not immediately, having Juve looking for you is not something that happens every day and I jumped at the opportunity. We talked, he told me more or less what he expects of me but we haven't discussed the details yet.
We all know what he did and what a player he is. But I'm Zakaria and I want to develop my style."
