Matri delight at “once in a lifetime” Juventus opportunity

Alessandro Matri is revelling in his move to Juventus. The Bianconeri took him on in the January transfer window and the striker believes that it is the chance of a lifetime.
Matri was officially unveiled yesterday after Juventus took the former Cagliari hitman on loan with an option to buy for 18 million euros in the summer. He stated that as he was growing up Christian Vieri was his idol and that he wanted to emulate him. He commented that this was part of his motivation to join Juventus saying that “There was a fun conversation with Cagliari President Massimo Cellino. He jokingly told me that if I were to stay at Cagliari I would earn double. However, I wanted to go to Juve and take the chance of my career so far. I have seen Juventus do well for a large part of the season, then they’ve had problems on account of injuries which have conditioned their performances.”
Matri is unphased by the step up and is ready to fill the void left by the injuries to the Bianconeri front men this term. He told the press that he was certainly not going to pass up his dream move, he said “Now I want to see if I am ready for this big step. In these situations it’s the pitch that does the talking and I hope to show my worth immediately. I asked Cellino to let me go to Juve because it was the chance of a lifetime, a chance that I have pursued since I started to play.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
