"This is my last season and I'm pretty sure of the choices I make". "I'm proud of this, but I need to thank my club, my coach and my teammates".

'For this year I hope we can play better and with a national team and Juventus because I would like to finish with a victory'.

"Like with everything, I look for a reason, and the only reason [to continue] would be winning the Champions League".

Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, the stopper has confessed that the ongoing season will be last, but should the Old Lady manages to get hands on the Champions League, he will consider his options as he wants to win the Club World Cup as well.
