Spinazzola: “These six months have been beautiful”

February 15, 2019

Leonardo Spinazzola expressed his happiness at returning to action for Juventus, declaring: “these six months have been beautiful.”

The talented wing-back has featured sparingly for Juventus following his return from a lengthy injury spell and was linked with a January move to Bologna, however he preferred to stay in Turin to play for the Bianconeri.

“These six months have been beautiful,” he told Juve’s official website.

“I have recovered well from my injury and, during this time, my son was also born. To be a part of this group, with these players and at this club is fantastic.

“Juventus have always followed me in the last eight years, and they have demonstrated to have faith in me. I am very happy.

“Now I am feeling much better. After the first few games, every time I play, I improve physically and I feel much better. I am satisfied.

“We have worked hard to be at the top in these months because it’s crucial for the League and the Champions League.

“Now it’s time to think about Frosinone, a game where we need to be focused, and then we will move onto Atletico. That will be a great game.

“Marco Baroni? I am happy to see him again because he is an excellent person.

“When I was 15 years old, he told me that if I wanted to play football at a high level, I needed to play as a full-back.

“However, I only wanted to play on the wing. After five years, we met again and I had to agree with him.

“We have a young group with a lot of talent and the players are proving to be at a great level.

“We have a lot to improve on still, but I think we are on the right track. The objective is Euro 2020.”
