Juventus player Arthur Melo spoke to Sky Sports microphones.
On his injury
“It was a strange injury, very unfortunate..”
“But I am lucky because I play for a big club with exceptional professionals and there is also my personal team that helped me a lot.”
“They did everything to get me back to playing as soon as possible, and I’m already much better now.”
“Obviously we need to check the workloads a bit because I’m still not at 100% but I really want to help the coach and the team and where I can help is on the pitch.”
“I’m doing the best I can with doctors and physiotherapists to be at my best as soon as possible.”
“Ihink I have improved a lot since the beginning of the season, I feel like a player with more quality and experience now.”
“I have to say thanks to Pirlo, who believed in me: he has always been direct with me, and I think the problems at the beginning of the season were there because he believed in me.”
“He helped me grow, today I make more passes between the lines, I am more offensive and I have also grown in the defensive phase.”
How was this season?
“It is still too early to say, because there is an open championship.”
“If we win the Scudetto and the Italian Cup it could be a positive year.”
“The biggest goal we had was the Champions League, we can no longer win it this season but we must look forward and try to win all the games that remain because nothing is lost yet.”
