Juventus forward Alessandro Matri says he is happy at Juventus, despite rumours of interest from Arsenal and Liverpool.
The 28-year-old has not been a first-team regular in Turin this season, but says he has no plans to leave the Italian champions as he insists he still feels valued at the club.
According to TalkSport, he told Italian media:
“It’s clear that I want to play in every game, but I’ve always felt like the club have backed me, that they have always been close to me. That’s a nice thing for players who are not used all of the time.
“When I’ve been called into action I’ve been ready and the side hasn’t missed who I have replaced. If I am made to feel like an important player then I would prefer to stay at Juventus, rather than join another club who could perhaps offer me more playing time.
“If the time comes where you start to lose faith then it is better to change clubs. Yet that moment hasn’t arrived yet. If it does then it will be me who asks to leave.”
