Matri happy with Juve goal count

Alessandro Matri is satisfied with the contribution he has made to Juventus’ Scudetto success this term.

Speaking after he netted the only goal in the win at Atalanta on Wednesday, the Italian international reflected on his campaign.

“It’s been fantastic because we’ve won the Scudetto, but also positive from a personal point of view,” he stated.

“Obviously a striker looks at his own statistics, but all things considered, I think I’ve got a good goals to minutes played ratio.

“Everyone wants to play all the time, but we know that’s just not possible.”

Matri has netted eight goals in 21 League games, which relate to 991 minutes of action in the top-flight.

However, the former Cagliari man’s future at the club is in some doubt given that Juve may freshen up their attacking department over the summer.

“I want to be a part of this group of strikers,” he underlined. “This constant talk of top players has somewhat overshadowed the great work of our attackers.

“Obviously you need the quality of champions to be able to win in Europe, but I think that after two Scudetto titles, people should give credit to those who have helped achieve them.”
