Juventus Turin,Italy (1999-2000)
After 2 glorious and blessed seasons with Ajax, I arrived at Juventus Turin,One of the most prestigious teams in the world ! The technical team was headed by Carlo Ancelotti. He was and still is one of the best coaches in the world in my opinion.
Playing alongside the legendary Zinedine Zidane for a whole season was a real blessing.
Zinedine Zidane is a legend and a very hard working one at that too. Even though he was gifted with extraordinary skills and talent, he worked as hard as he could to improve and in favor of the team.
Playing with Players like Zidane, Edgar Davids,Pipo Inzaghi, Alessandro Del Piero,Antonio Conte,Ciro Ferrera etc was a great learning and honorable experience. Coupled with watching and experiencing Carlo Ancellotti work as a trainer was an unique experience!
In June 2000, I was transferred to Borussia Dortmund in Germany.
