It does hardly some months was a star in the Ajax, but the market of signings confirmed the jump of Matthijs of Ligt to the Juventus. The footballer of Leiderdorp continues with his meteoric progression in one of the most powerful groups of Europe, although in the last months has had to adapt to a very distinct stage to the that was accustomed. In Turín have arrived the difficulties.

The Dutch has confessed in an interview on the problems of adaptation that is suffering in Italy, where the press has signalled him by several errors in his first performances that cost goals and maximum penalties against to the today leader of the Series To. In his conversation with 'Fox Sports', the youngster has ensured that it is conscious that it has to improve and has revealed that it already is something calmer.

"After the party against the Athletic in the League of Champions, said me, 'this is not the player that am'. After this began to play with more confidence and since the ascending line has begun", has commented, and has recognised that it does not think in the big investment made in his incorporation: "Of course that it was a big purchase and did not want to commit errors. But you would not have to think like this, never I have played with this thought".

Doing reference to the stop of selections of October, the defender has explained that has noticed a positive evolution from September, since the shooting with the vecchia signora' has come him well: "I Am different regarding the previous international period. After the party against Estonia, think that played six parties, five of which were good or very good. I can say that I am more accustomed, but still have to improve".

Of Ligt has done reference to his mentality and to his concentration when it has been questioned by the duel in front of the Inter of Milan, in which the 'bianconeri' heaved until the first place of the league: "it Was a battle, a fight of high intensity. The line for the critical is very thin if you do it well or badly, alas that is the life of a defender. This type of parties against the Inter are fantastic to measure the strengths, no something that live all the weeks. Deal to learn of my errors".

In this sense, also has justified by a penalti committed in the meeting with the 'nerazzurri', when it touched the balloon with the hand in an action in which it tried to anticipate to Lautaro Martínez in the area: "I have seen It from an angle in which I do not touch the ball at all. It is distorted and is just what obtains the referee. I did not feel the ball in my arm, felt that it struck me the side. Therefore I asked the VAR, but the referee decided the contrary. After this does not remain another option that change the chip".

Of Ligt forgets of the market by some months

Although it cost him a long time decide on his future, Of Ligt at last has attained to separate of the market, since it is decided to surpass the obstacles to consolidate in the Juventus.
