Having joined Juventus Turin from Schalke in 2020, Weston Mckennie has had the opportunity to rub shoulders with several of the Old Lady’s stars. Among them Gianluigi Buffon and Leonardo Bonucci. In a recent interview, he recounts this unforgettable experience.

“I didn’t bring anything with me. Also because I had done my first training session in Adidas Copas, which were also half a size bigger. During the first training session, I looked at Chiellini, Higuain, Cuadrado, Bonucci, Buffon and myself. I couldn’t believe it. Few people know that when I was a kid, in my bedroom after Italy won the 2006 World Cup, I put up a poster of the team lifting the trophy. Seeing them and, above all, playing with them was surreal, I was so excited,” reports TuttoJuve.com.
