Niederhauser: Zakaria the player Juventus have badly needed

William Niederhauser is delighted seeing Denis Zakaria hit the ground running with Juventus.

Just days after his arrival from Borussia Monchengladbach, Zakaria scored on debut in victory over Hellas Verona on Sunday.

Niederhauser coached Zakaria at Servette and told TMW: "I have many good memories related to Zakaria. I'm happy to have coached him because he is one of those players who remain forever etched in your mind for his spirit of sacrifice, attachment to the shirt, daily commitment ... Denis never spares himself, you had a glimpse also last night.

"Dynamism, quantity, but also quality. Denis is the box to box that Juve badly needed in the middle of the pitch. We are talking about a skilled midfielder in the two phases, able to play for 90 minutes with the same extraordinary intensity.

"Zakaria is a class of 1996 who still has ample room for growth. In Italy he will certainly continue to improve, with humility and maximum application. In my opinion he will do well with the Bianconeri shirt, giving them a precious contribution in the middle of the field."
