Giangiacomo Magnani admits ‘it’s difficult to describe’ his ‘huge jump’ from Serie C to Serie A with Juventus and Sassuolo in the space of a year.

Magnani was playing in the third tier with Sicilian minnows Siracusa until January but joined Juventus over the summer, before being immediately loaned to Sassuolo.

Giangiacomo Magnani admits ‘it’s difficult to describe’ his ‘huge jump’ from Serie C to Serie A with Juventus and Sassuolo in the space of a year.

Magnani was playing in the third tier with Sicilian minnows Siracusa until January but joined Juventus over the summer, before being immediately loaned to Sassuolo.

The defender then caught the eye on his Serie A debut last weekend, helping the Neroverdi keep a clean sheet during their 1-0 win against Inter. 

“I can hardly believe what’s happened to me in the space of a year,” the 22-year-old told Tuttosport.

“From Siracusa in Serie C to Serie A is a huge jump. It’s difficult to describe the emotions I feel.

“[Roberto] De Zerbi insists on transmitting his game to us, continuing the path we started a month and a half ago.

“I came here telling myself to learn everything I could. I’m very attached to my hometown, so I joined Sassuolo for that reason too.

“I don’t think you can have a single point of reference as there have been so many champions.

“I don’t have one idol above all the others, I can learn from each one. [Milan] Skriniar? I can gather many ideas from him.

“I’ll be happy if Sassuolo have had a great season come May and enjoy the satisfaction they deserve.”
