New Juventus signing Simone Padoin desperate for silverware

The midfielder left Atalanta for the Bianconeri on deadline day of the transfer window, and is eager to win his first major trophy at the Turin giants this season
New Juventus signing Simone Padoin has expressed his delight with his move to the Old Lady, and is desperate to win silverware with the Serie A table toppers.

The 27-year-old joined Juventus from Atalanta on the final day of the January transfer window, and Padoin is hopeful of winning the first major trophy in his career at his new club.

"Signing for Juventus was a unique opportunity for me. This club always wants to win trophies, and I'm looking forward to playing a role in their strive for success. I have never won a trophy in my career yet," Padoin said in an interview with Juventus Channel.

"This transfer came as a real surprise to me. I never expected Juventus to try and sign me. As soon as I heard of their interest, I made it clear to Atalanta that I wanted to leave."

Padoin could make his official Juventus debut in Sunday's Serie A game at home against Siena.
