Hernanes: ‘Juventus a surprise’

New Juventus midfielder Hernanes admits it was ‘a surprise’ when the Bianconeri came in for him.

The Old Lady had been pursuing a trequartista all summer, and finally secured the Brazilian international on deadline day.

However, the move was not met with universal acclaim by fans of the Turin giants, and the former Lazio man admits even he was surprised.

“I’m surprised,” Hernanes admitted in his presentation Press conference.

“But above all I’m happy and content. Football is an ever-changing thing, which can have its own dynamics, so things like what has happened with me can happen.

“It’s something that I never thought about, but it happened. I was happy at Inter, it was a good experience, but today, a few hours later I’m ready for a new challenge and a new experience.

“So those are my feelings, I’m surprised, but also happy and content, because there are many beautiful things to be accomplished here.”
