Juventus midfielder Christian Poulsen believes he's proved himself this season.

The Dane was being pushed out the door by Juve in the summer, but dug in his heels and refused to leave.

"They told me that we were too many in midfield after the signing of Felipe Melo, but I could not go away after just one year," Poulsen said.

"For me, coming to Juve represented a great chance after seasons in Germany and in Spain. To leave would have been a fiasco.

"I wanted and in fact I still want to show my good standard of football. I want to show that I can play at this football club,"
