Chiesa thrilled to make winning Champions League debut with Juventus

Federico Chiesa was delighted to help Juventus to their 2-0 win at Champions League opponents Dynamo Kyiv.

It marked the former Fiorentina winger's debut in the competition.

“I put myself at the disposal of the coach and did what he asked, which was to stay wide and take my man on when I had the ball," Chiesa told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was fantastic to make my debut in the Champions League, especially as we won, so it could not have gone better. We wanted this win to start strong and gave everything we had to emerge from this difficult arena with all three points.

“There was a lot of criticism after the Crotone draw, which is natural, because expectations are always very high at Juventus. We're expected to win every time we step onto the pitch."
