Khedira: 'Juve more experienced'

Sami Khedira is confident Juventus will get past Tottenham Hotspur, but admits he sees himself in the Premier League in future.

The first leg of the Round of 16 ended 2-2 in Turin, so the Bianconeri need a victory or a score draw of 2-2 and above at Wembley on Wednesday evening.

“We have a lot of experience and know how to tackle big games, and we have many other teams ahead of us - including Tottenham,” the German international told Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper.

“We are still not satisfied after the successes in recent years, and that is what stands us apart.”

Napoli went out of the Europa League on away goals to RB Leipzig, but Khedira warns that is not a fair way to judge Serie A.

“This was not the Napoli I know from Serie A. They left out so many regulars in the first leg, so that tie is not a true yardstick if their quality.”

Khedira’s current contract with Juventus runs to June 2019 and he has been linked with a move to MLS, but has other ambitions first.

“In general, like new challenges, as there’s so much I have not yet experienced. I'm still relatively young, I have a few years left. I still haven’t had enough in football and want to win many more titles.

“I am very enthusiastic about the pace and the intensity of English football, as they often play straight forward. I like that very much, yes. You can’t rule anything out in football.”
