Candreva excited about making Juventus debut against Roma

Antonio Candreva is excited about making his Juventus debut this weekend against Roma.

The former Udinese midfielder has signed with Juve after spending the first-half of the season on-loan with Livorno.

"These things pass you by on a second level. Now I wear a very important jersey like that of Juventus and I am only thinking about this," Candreva, a Roma fan as a boy, said.

"If I were to score, I would certainly celebrate, also because I have never played for Roma."

Speaking to the Juventus Channel, Candreva revealed his first impressions of the Bianconeri.

"I am proud to wear this shirt. I can't wait to begin this new adventure. Yesterday I left Livorno for Milan to sign the contract. Later in the evening I arrived in Turin and this morning I made a brief visit of the club's offices.

"It has been a wonderful emotion to see the pictures of all the great champions that have played for this club. I have also met Ferrara who wished me good luck.

"To arrive in a team like Juve is the dream of any player. I didn't expect this opportunity to arrive so soon. They are all emotional back at home. It's a wonderful achievement.

"I will try to show that I can be a useful player for Juventus."
