Kingsley Coman says he is happy to wait for his chance at Juventus, as he believes that his patience will be rewarded in the long run.
The 18-year-old has featured only sporadically since joining the Bianconeri from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
However, he has vowed to continue working hard in training and not kick up a fuss about his perceived lack of playing time.
“Lately, it's true, I haven't had much playing time, but I'm not worried,” Coman has told L'Equipe this week.
“I'm working hard in training and I knew very well that I could be in this situation. I only need 10-15 minutes per game to prove myself.
“The Coach isn't there just to please me or make me happy. I signed with Juventus for five years and set myself a goal of 15-20 appearances earlier in the season. I can achieve this.
“I am used to this and have been in far worse situations before now. I learned to be patient.
“Tevez, Llorente and the other forwards are all very good players. They have experience of playing at the highest level.
“But in training, I feel that I'm not far away.
“My teammates? They all give me lots of advice. Every time Uncle Pat [Evra] each day tells me to do my best and prove that I can play and help the team's fortunes.”
