The Dutch defender says he places more importance on what he does on the field than his looks
Mathis de Ligt, 21, from Juventus, spoke in an interview with De Volkskrant about his early days in Turin. And the player reveals that the way he dressed was really a matter of laughter in the Bianconeri dressing room.
“I don’t like expensive clothes. I’m Matthijs, myself and they won’t see me coming to training in a custom-made suit. My profession is football, I want to be a superstar on the field. Sometimes in the club they laugh at me for the way I dress, but I don’t care. As long as I do.” I dress well, I am satisfied. The most important thing is a good performance on the field, if that is what the defender says, “I will respect you a lot more than if you wear a certain uniform.” De Ligt also tells how the players are loved in Italy. Or, badly, you are still a hero to the masses. In the Netherlands I was a normal boy playing football. In Italy, as a soccer player, you are at the top of society. Through the streets of the Netherlands. “
The player also spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo. “The way he looks, how does he stay fit and motivated at age 36 … Awesome. Chiellini is as he is, Buffon too, despite his 43 years. Everyone is very professional.”
