Patrice Evra said his first Juventus match in Indonesia gave him “the same sensations as with Manchester United.”
The Frenchman made his Bianconeri debut in the 8-1 victory in Jakarta this afternoon.
“In all honesty I didn’t expect such a welcome from the fans, as I thought that only happened with United,” Evra told Juventus.com.
“Mind you, this is precisely why I chose Juve: because it is a big club like Manchester and gives you the same sensations.
“I am very happy. I thank my teammates, the masseurs, everyone in the staff. They gave me a warm welcome and I already feel like family.
“Today the result was unimportant, but it is always nice to win and score lots of goals. We took this test seriously and are working hard, but the important thing is to be ready for August 30.”
