Rabiot: 'Can't wait for debut'

Adrien Rabiot “can’t wait to debut in this new adventure” for Juventus ahead of their Serie A opener against Parma. “Juve are ready for anything.”

The former Paris Saint-Germain star was a free agent and considered offers from Manchester United and others before picking Turin.

“I can’t wait to debut in this new adventure,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “We had a good pre-season and a lot of time to prepare the new campaign. They’ll all be difficult, starting with Parma this weekend, but we’re confident.

“Juve are ready for anything and will be concentrated, but first we must focus everything on Parma. I don’t know if I’ll start on Saturday, but I feel good and can’t wait to play in Serie A.

“Turin is very different to Paris, but my family and I are settling in well, which is an important aspect for me to give my best on the pitch.”

One of the reasons Rabiot gave for joining Juventus was the chance to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Ronaldo is a great professional and it is an advantage for me to train and play with him. We both play on the left, so we have a good rapport and are refining it further with time.”

France legend Franck Ribery held his presentation Press conference at Fiorentina today, as more and more players are crossing the Alps.

“Ribery is a great player who has won so much in his career,” added Rabiot.

“It’s positive for Serie A, for the Viola and for everyone in general that he is here, because he lifts the level and I am happy that he’s in Italy.”
