Danilo played in midfield to plug the gaps against Salernitana, but assures he is ‘never out of position, because Juventus is my position.’
The Bianconeri had to recover from their Champions League elimination at the hands of Villarreal and made short work of Salernitana this afternoon.
Paulo Dybala opened the scoring, followed by a Dusan Vlahovic header on Mattia De Sciglio’s cross.
“As we said on Wednesday, all we could do was apologise to the fans and keep going,” Danilo told DAZN.
“It wasn’t our best performance, but we won and that’s the important thing. We paid a price for the physical and psychological strain of the Villarreal match, there are many injuries and Manuel Locatelli got COVID too.”
The Brazilian has been a centre-back, a right-back, a left-back and today was in midfield, so what is his position?
“I am never out of position, because Juventus is my position,” he replied. “I do what is asked of me and what the team needs.”
Juventus are now just one point behind third-placed Inter, even if the Nerazzurri have a game in hand, and these sides go head-to-head after the break for international duty. Are they still in the Scudetto race?
“We do our work, we look at our own results. It’s a match with plenty of motivation, but our objective is to finish in the top four so we can qualify for the Champions League.”
