Cancelo 'much better' at Juve

Joao Cancelo claims he has become a ‘much better’ player at Juventus thanks to training with two of the ‘world’s best’ in Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini.

Cancelo was called up for Portugal’s first two Euro 2020 qualifiers against Ukraine and Serbia, although his inclusion was overshadowed by the return of Juve teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone,” the right-back said at a Press conference.

“He’s made history for the national team and every club he’s played at. It’s obvious that he adds quality wherever he is.

“The win against with Atletico Madrid? Ronaldo was really important for us going through, but the whole team did well, even if having him in the team makes it easier.

“Anyone who watched the game knows we won deservedly.”

The former Valencia defender has played in Serie A since 2017, spending last season at Inter before making a permanent move to Juve…

“I learn something every year,” explained the 24-year-old.

“Now I’m training with two best defenders in the world, Bonucci and Chiellini. In Italy the bar is very high and today I feel much better than I did a year or two ago.”
