Troost-Ekong speaks on Udinese beating Juventus

Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong has reacted to the win Udinese recorded against Juventus in the Italian Serie A.

Goals from Ilija Nestorovski and Cote d’Ivoire international Seko Fofana ensured that the 42nd goal by Matthijs de Ligt ends in a defeat for Juventus.

Speaking after the game, Troost-Ekong revealed that Udinese players were determined to frustrate Juventus and their desire to win the title.

"I am very happy because of these three heavy points and also because before the game, no one would have bet on us,” Troost-Ekong told Udinese TV on Thursday night.

“They came here to celebrate and that charged us before the game. Today [on Thursday] we played with personality and we deserved to win.”

The 26-year old also revealed that he doesn't mind playing in any position in the team.

“Well, I played in the middle for two years but after the lockdown, the manager wanted me to move to the right,” he continued.

“Obviously, he decides how we get on the field but I think as a defensive midfielder I can be more useful to the team.”
