Martinez looks for redemption

Jorge Martinez is eager to redeem himself after spending much of his first season at Juventus on the sidelines.

The 27-year-old winger, a €12m signing from Catania in the summer, has made just one starting appearance in the current campaign.

However, he is fit again and could play a part in Sunday's match against Bari.

Speaking to the Juventus Channel, he said: "I feel good and I have no pain in my foot.

"Now I only have to work hard to find my fitness again. I have a lot of desire to redeem myself.

"I played in the second half against Bari at the start of the season. But I hurt myself and had to stop playing for a month.

"I started against Milan. I felt good. But I got kicked and broke my metatarsal.

"It makes me angry not to play with consistency and show my worth.

"Aside from the defeats to Parma and Napoli, I have seen a good Juve.

"My teammates have played great and showed notable quality.

"I like this Juve a lot and I am convinced that we can go far," he concluded.
