Daniele Rugani the new Juventus defender

He's gonna wear the number 24, as in Empoli, Daniele Rugani, new face of the Juventus defense, Juventus fan from birth ("my father has taught me to love Juve") and, close to 21 years (they will perform on July 29th ), Allegri bet on him for the future. "It was a simple choice to be here: I want to play my chances and repay the faith that Juve has shown me. The club wants to launch many young boys this year, we will produce the maximum enthusiasm, we are ready to give our contribution. I dreamed since i was a child about playing in the Champions League, now I have this opportunity. "

For someone who last season made a clear path, 38 league games, no replacement or even a yellow card, now have to fight hard to carve out space in the heavily fortified defense of Juventus. But Rugani is not afraid of the challenge, he wanted to fight. And then from players like Bonucci, Chiellini and Barzagli's always something to learn. "from Bonucci i'd steal personality in the field, the tranquility and the way you play, the competitive nastiness from Chiellini and from Barzagli the attention, these are players that I can learn so much from."

Rugani is the classic good guy: no tattoo, quiet life off the pitch. "But that does not mean - he says - that i'm not strong, I m not scared about takles."
