De Sciglio: 'Lyon believed in me'

Mattia De Sciglio explains why he chose to leave Juventus for a loan spell at Olympique Lyonnais. ‘They believed in me.’

The Italy international had also been linked with several other teams over the summer, but he picked a new experience in Ligue 1.

“I chose to come to Lyon because they believed in me and showed that they genuinely wanted me here,” De Sciglio told the official Lyon website.

“The trust they put in me pushed me to accept the loan straight away. The time had also come for me to try an experience abroad.

“I want to find the consistency here that I was unable to enjoy last season and can therefore get myself back on track, do my best to help Lyon achieve their objectives this season and hope to participate in Euro 2020.

“I don’t know what I’ll do in future, as I might stay here or return to Italy, I really have no idea right now.”
