Lucio excited Juve’s ‘excellent project’
The 34-year-old fought off several offers to make his move to the Old Lady, after having rescinded his contract with Inter with just one more year to go. And he believes that the vision and challenge Juventus have in mind is one that suits him.
“I’ve turned over a new leaf,” the Brazilian said in his first press conference with the club. “I’m happy and I think it’s an important step as far as my career’s concerned.
“There’s an excellent project here and I feel it’s important to remain at a high level playing for a great side.
“We know it will be tough to play in the Champions League this year, there are always strong teams involved. Having said that, I feel that Juventus are capable of challenging in every competition we’ll face this year.
“We’re aware of the difficulties that lie ahead, but we must always maintain a winning mentality.”
Lucio has been a part of international and domestic success over the years but maintains his huger is still as fresh as ever, even after 15-years.
“Whenever I put the shirt on I do whatever’s required for my team. It’s my intention to do my very best for Juventus and dedicate myself fully to the cause.”
