Ouwejan: 'Udinese a step up'

New Udinese signing Thomas Ouwejan is looking forward to his move away from AZ Alkmaar. ‘Serie A is a step up from the Eredivisie.’

The left-back turns 24 later this month and made the move on loan with option to buy.

“Some of the AZ promises were not kept and I didn’t like what happened in the January transfer window,” he told NH Nieuws.

“I played here for 13 years, but perhaps waited a year too long before leaving. There was no point staying here and this is why I am very happy to have this new opportunity.

“Serie A is a step up from the Eredivisie and I can’t wait for the moment we face teams like Juventus, Milan, Inter and Roma.

“Of course, I do need to earn my place in the Udinese side first.”
