The defender has impressed under coach Rino Gattuso.
He said, “I played a lot in 2018 and I have to thank my Coach Gattuso for the continuity and space he's given me.
“The Supercoppa? It's difficult to face Juventus, but they're not unbeatable.
"It was also seen in Doha two years ago: they were the favourites, but games always start at 0-0."
