Isla will be worthy of Juventus

The agent of Mauricio Isla believes that, with time, his client will prove himself to be good enough for Juventus.

The Chilean joined the club in a co-ownership deal from Udinese in the summer and is now back in action following a knee ligament injury.

“We need to be patient because he has only just returned after injury, but you’ll soon see the real Isla,” Claudio Vagheggi noted.

“His value is basically known by everyone, but he will soon demonstrate that he is a player of the highest level and one worthy of a club like Juve.”

Isla returned to competitive action with Chile this month, while he made his debut for Juventus in the Champions League 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

The South American started his first game for the Old Lady in the 2-0 win over Chievo on Saturday. He lasted 56 minutes.
