Juventus midfielder Bentancur: Only Iniesta better than Arthur

Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur has hailed the talent of teammate Arthur.

Bentancur was speaking after Saturday's victory over Sampdoria.

"We played very well in the first half, but we should have killed the game earlier," the Uruguay international told Juve TV.

“We are happy for the three points.

“We are in shape and everyone is doing well right now," the former Boca man added.

“Arthur…mamma mia! I think only [Andres] Iniesta is better than him with the ball at his feet. It is a pleasure to play with him. We are all playing well in midfield, we have a good team.

“I can't chose between McKennie and Arthur," he told Sky Sport later on.

“Sometimes [Andrea] Pirlo plays games in training. He is still incredible, especially with his long passes," he concluded.
