“You can see that football in England is different to football in Italy,” he told fulhamfc.com. “It is a lot more physical over here and in my opinion the game is played at a higher level, although in Italy it is arguably more tactical.
“It was a great honour to play for a club like Juventus, one of the most renowned and successful clubs not just in Italy, but perhaps even the world. But after four seasons in Turin I am now concentrating on being here and doing well for Fulham.
“In the short while that I have been here I must say that I feel very good because everyone has been very welcoming. I can sense that there is a close bond within the squad and that is a very important thing – especially if we are to do well and move forward.”
