Juventus’ Blaise Matuidi believes the fact he has played for both the Old Lady and Paris Saint-Germain says a lot about his quality.
The midfielder moved from the French capital to Turin during the summer’s transfer window.
And speaking after joining Didier Deschamps’ squad on international duty, the 30-year-old hit back at critics in his homeland who have previously questioned his ability.
“I feel really good,” Matuidi told reporters. “I have arrived at a big club, with history and ambition.
“Like PSG, Juve want to win all the titles they can.
“I am at a great club, I played in Paris and now I’m at Juve. People shouldn’t take that lightly.
“If I have these chances, despite what you say about me, it’s because I have the necessary quality to play for clubs of that ilk.
“Juve are a huge club.”
Matuidi added that despite now being in his thirties, he wants to continue to represent his country for years to come.
“I have played a lot of matches for the national team and I want to continue to do so.
“The competition for places is healthy and normal.”
