Juventus midfielder Tiago feels he's getting a second chance under coach Ciro Ferrara.
"I am much happier in a three-man midfield," he told the Corriere dello Sport. "It means working harder, but also having more freedom.
"Now I can push forward, try to slot in to attacking moves, the things I always used to do and really enjoyed."
Tiago got his first taste of the new Juve when he played in Wednesday's 4-1 friendly win over Cisco Roma.
"There is a renewed sense of enthusiasm. We are a good squad and Ferrara wants us to play the ball. This will be a more entertaining Juventus," continued the Portugal international.
"The Coach wants to win and proved he feels like one of us. He helped me a great deal personally and it was important to know he had faith in me."
