Caceres: 'Juventus is my home'

Martin Caceres is glad to be “back in my home” after returning for a third stint at Juventus. “I’ll try to prove I’m still the same player.”

The Uruguay international left Lazio for Juve in a deal said to be worth €600,000.

“I am very happy to be back in this environment, as it has always been my home,” Caceres told JTV.

“When I received the proposal to wear this jersey again, I thought back to all the years I spent here. This is the jersey closest to my heart.

“Hopefully it’s third time lucky! It’s the second time I have arrived in January, too. Every time, I scored on my Juventus debut in 2009 and 2012, and they were important goals. Hopefully it can go the same way again.”

Juventus have changed a great deal since his departure, above all with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo.

“His career speaks for him and he is continuing to prove, in Italian football too, what a champion he is. Despite everything this team has won, nobody wants to slow down. That’s the sensation I got from the outside over the last two-and-a-half years.”

With Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli out of action for at least another month, Caceres can be of use with his versatility.

“I have played in every defensive role during my career and I am happy to be a Joker in the pack to help the team and Coach. I bring enthusiasm and will try every day to prove I’m still the same player as when I was last here.”
