Moise Kean Reflects on Failure to Make Azzurri’s EURO 2020 Squad

Juventus are bound to take some time adjust themselves after the surprise departure of star forward Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United. The Portuguese talisman added 101 Bianconeri goals to his club tally in 134 appearances.

The Italian giants have brought in Moise Kean on loan from Everton, for his second stint in Turin. The two-year loan deal will end in 2023, when Juventus will have the right to exercise an obligation to buy for around the €30m mark including add-ons.

The former Paris-Saint Germain man is ready to make an impact back where he started during his youth days in 2015.

Speaking to RaiSport (via Tuttosport) in an exclusive interview, the Italy international reflected on his comeback, both in the Azzurri colours and the Black & White of Juventus.

“It was important to take back this shirt and give one hundred percent,”  he said, after scoring a brace against Lithuania in Italy’s World Cup Qualifiers match.

He put his disappointment of not being called for the country’s EURO 2020 winning squad behind by starring in the 5-0 win over Lithuania, that made Italy the all-time record holders on the international stage on 37 unbeaten matches – the same as Brazil between 1993 and 2016.

However, he admitted it was difficult watching the Azzurri’s matches from home.

“It was not easy to watch the European Championship at home, but I always cheered for my mates in front of the television, they were good at winning the cup.

The call-up depends on me, on my work and on how serious I am, my teammates have always welcomed me well,” he said.

Juventus will resume their season against Napoli on September 11.
