LUCIO HAPPY WITH DECISION
Former Inter Milan defender Lucio has said that his decision to move to Italian champions Juventus was extremely good. The 32-year-old defender decided to bring an end to his short three-year spell with Inter Milan to an end at the start of last season.
He was one of the arrivals at Juventus along with Andrea Pirlo. Both these players have proven to be extremely influential in helping Juventus win their 28th league title and also their first league title since 2003. Lucio enjoyed tremendous success at Inter Milan after moving on a free transfer from Bayern Munich. He was the main member of the Inter Milan team that won the treble back in 2010.
He has said that he could have easily stayed at Inter Milan, but the fact that he was able to enjoy a new challenge at Juventus made the offer irresistible. He has now said that he has no regrets about moving to Juventus, who are looking to dominate Europe once again after completing their resurgence in the form of the Italian Serie A title last season. The Brazilian defender has said that Inter Milan are in a transitional phase and does not expect them to be challenging for titles anytime soon.
“I’m somebody that always honours the shirt that I wear.
Juventus have returned to being a great team and our mentality must be a winning one. I’m now at the disposal of the Coach in order to adapt to the systems he employs. We know that it won’t be easy to win in Europe, but I think Juventus is already amongst the best. We can aim for the maximum in the Champions League, as well as Serie A and the Coppa Italia,” said Lucio in the pre-season tour for Juventus. Juventus are linked with a move for Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.
