After spending many years at Barcelona where he was not just allowed but encouraged to play the way he really wanted, Dani Alves felt rather restrained at Juventus. At least that’s what he told Fox Sports, explaining his decision to leave the Serie A champions.
I’m a footballer who loves to play with the ball and with the team, and risk making some skillful moves. I think that Juventus didn’t understand my style of play and this did not allow me to be happy
the 34-year-old right-back said. As for asking the Italian club to end his contract prematurely so he could move somewhere else, he has no regrets, especially seeing how things are at Paris Saint-Germain.
I wanted a new experience; a new adventure. That doesn’t take anything away from the fact I will always be grateful to Juventus. Here in Paris I feel good and I am certainly more free
Dani Alves said. The former Sevilla and Barcelona star has already scored his first goal for PSG in their Super Cup 2-1 win over champions Monaco, and last weekend he got credited with an assist in their 2-0 win over Amiens, on the first day of the new Ligue 1 season.
