Pasquato believes in Lecce path

Cristian Pasquato says he has no regrets in leaving Juventus for Lecce on transfer deadline day.

After a loan spell at Modena in Serie B, the youngster caught the eye of Juventus in pre-season.

However, once the club signed three left-sided midfielders, the decision was taken to loan out the player again in order to gain experience.

"I accepted the switch to Salento with great enthusiasm," noted the young Italian.

"I spoke with a few people and everyone advised me to accept the offer of Lecce. This is an ideal place for a youngster to grow."

Pasquato will be joined at the Stadio Via Del Mare by fellow Juventus youth product Manuel Giandonato.
