Juventus striker Moise Kean 'very happy' proving matchwinner against Sampdoria

Juventus striker Moise Kean was delighted to prove the matchwinner for their 1-0 victory over Empoli.

It means he has become the youngest player since Mario Balotelli (who was 18 years and 242 days old in 2009) to reach eight Serie A goals.

“I'm very happy at another record. As I said, I'm always ready to beat some more records," he told Sky Sport Italia, aged 19 years and 31 days.

“Hard work is the only thing that can help me prove what I can do every single weekend.

"Of course I am not Cristiano (Ronaldo) or (Lionel) Messi. I hope to one day reach their level, if I work hard enough."
