Matthijs de Ligt admitted that he was struggling to adjust to the expectations and play at Juventus.

“I’m still not at my best, I know that. At Ajax I felt a sense of invincibility. Now I feel less so, but it’s natural. I have a little less confidence than I did last season. I’m at a new club, with a new style of play and new teammates. For me, it’s all new. It’s less familiar than at Ajax, but I’m getting better and better," said de Ligt.

De Ligt, who was forced into the starting lineup following an ACL injury to Giorgio Chiellini, has yet to lose a match with Juventus this season.
