The new Bianconeri defender: "After 16 fantastic years at Schalke, I felt that this was my way. I will do my best for the team!".
Since he was a teenager, Benedikt Höwedes has known just one club, Schalke 04, so his introductory press conference at Juventus on Thursday afternoon was a brand new experience for the German. Here is what he told journalists compiled at the Allianz Stadium:
"I feel great. I think that Juventus is one of the five best clubs in the world so being part of this club is a great privilege and honor for me. I think here I can certainly enjoy the next few years and enjoy these experiences."
"Obviously, we always consider the attention we pay to the national team as a football player. As a player on the German National Team, I have the goal to play in the World Cup so that’s why I’m here because I can play in the Champions League and at a very top level. Playing at such a great club will allow me to play at a very high level."
