Leonardo Spinazzola happy to be back with Juventus

Leonardo Spinazzola is happy to be back with Juventus.

The defender has returned after an extended loan with Atalanta.

“First of all, I have to thank you that there are so many people here, I thought it would just be my agents asking me questions!" Spinazzola laughed, beginning his presentation Press conference.

“It would have been hugely emotional even without Cristiano Ronaldo, being here is a dream.

“I wanted to come back last year, but you know how the transfer market goes. Last year I felt it was a train I couldn't miss, but Atalanta told me I had to stay.

“I ended up being happy because we had a great league season, a great Europa League campaign, and it was good for me and the team.

“I want to thank everyone at Atalanta: [Coach Gian Piero] Gasperini, all the staff and my teammates.

“They were two beautiful years, and were it not for them I might not be here. I also thank Juventus, who waited for me over these six years. I'm very happy and excited.

“The first few loan spells were difficult because I couldn't play and do my best, then I got moved into a role which I feel better playing in and had more awareness of what I could do. Those two years in Bergamo gave me so much."
