At the end of the morning training session, Sasa Lukic spoke at the press conference. The Serbian midfielder talked about how the retirement is going and his impressions of Juric. Here the first part of his statements (the second will be published tomorrow morning).
Juric uses you in different positions. Even as an attacking midfielder. Where are you best?
“The coach also tried me as an attacking midfielder. In recent years in Turin I have played in all the roles, I am used to it and I can play anywhere. I am at your disposal. He decides. I also like to play midfielder“.
Spartak Moscow and Crystal Palace had been looking for you, what prompted you to stay in Taurus?
“I don’t read the newspapers a lot, it’s normal for a player to be at the center of market rumors. I am focused on Turin. I only think about this season and the retirement. I want to do well this season“.
What are your personal goals for this season?
“This is my fifth year and I feel at home. Every year I try to do as well as possible. Last year I got off to a good start, then Covid came, which stopped me for two weeks and then I was unable to return as before. I’m working hard because I want to do well. I hope to have a good season together with the team“.
After the last two seasons maybe redeeming will now be easier?
“Honestly, I for one want to forget the last two years. We all know we have done wrong. We know where we went wrong and what we need to correct. I don’t like looking back. We have a great coach and you can already see his hand. We all want to have a great season. From the first day I see all the positive guys, with a desire to work and grow. The Toro fans deserve to see a good team“.
