Cuadrado: 'We are calm'

Juan Cuadrado has revealed that Juventus are “calm”, as Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi are “much better” after testing positive for the COVID-19.

The Colombian star has reassured the fans that his teammates are doing well but warned his compatriots in South America to take the necessary precautions against the Coronavirus outbreak.

“We are calm, because our teammates Rugani and Matuidi are much better and we follow the indications of the government,” he told ESPN. “I don’t want people to take this situation lightly. Here in Italy it’s quite difficult.

“We must pay attention to what the authorities and our President say. It is four our sakes, people don’t believe it, but cases have increased with time, we must take the necessary measures to make sure that there are fewer cases in Colombia than there are here in Italy.”

Cuadrado has recently extended his deal with the Old Lady but admitted that he has contemplated a return to Colombia and insisted that he enjoys playing under their current CT Carlos Queiroz.

“I thought about going back to Independiente de Medellin,” he said. “But maybe it will happen later.

“Since I talked to the [Colombia] coach, I have always felt confident. He told me where he would use me, and I always give my best regardless of my position.

“Everyone knows my characteristics, him too. I’m willing to do what he asks of me, I will always do what’s best for my country.”
