OFFICIAL: Stefano Sturaro joins Juventus

February 2, 2015 - 4:57 pm

Stefano Sturaro says he is ‘happy and excited’ to join Juventus having ended his loan spell at Genoa to join the Bianconeri ahead of schedule.

Juventus confirmed the Sturaro’s recall from Genoa in a club statement earlier today.

“A summer signing for Juventus back in July, versatile up-and-coming star Stefano Sturaro returns to Turin following a fruitful loan spell with former club Genoa in order to provide cover for the Bianconeri midfield in both an attacking and defensive dimension,” the Old Lady confirmed in a statement.

“Normally deployed as an inside midfielder, Sturaro has also enjoyed playing time in the number ten role and on the wing, namely to cater for his expert crossing ability.

“He is a powerful, imposing presence in the middle of the park with good feet and is adept at both attacking and defending.

“Undoubtedly a talent of the future for both club and country, Sturaro will bolster Massimiliano Allegri’s squad as the Bianconeri continue their assault for a fight on all three fronts during the remainder of this campaign.”
Sturaro undertook his first training session with the club at Vinovo today and gave an exlusive first interview to JTV

    He looked good in the game against Fiorentina. Very tough and energetic. It is hard to imagine how he’ll fit with this team. He can probably deputize for Vidal or Pereyra, but it is unlikely he’ll get much time barring some injury crisis. Perhaps leaving him to develop at Genoa would have been a better choice. Anyway, who am I to question Marotta and Paratici.
