Isla eager to repay Juventus faith

The Chile international is keen to prove his worth and help the reigning Serie A champions to more silverware after recovering from a knee injury that hampered his form

Mauricio Isla is keen to repay Juventus for their faith in him following his return to full fitness.

The 25-year-old joined the Serie A champions from Udinese in 2012, but initially saw his opportunities limited as he struggled for form following knee surgery.

However, having started Juve's last two Serie A fixtures, Isla is now determined to make a positive impact and give something back to the reigning champions.

"I had a nasty injury and everyone here at Juventus has been very patient with me," Isla told reporters.

"I have always given my all, but I need to continue working hard to repay people for the faith they have shown.

"[Antonio] Conte decided that I would stay at this club and I'm happy to be here, but I need to show that on the field of play."

Isla has made eight appearances for Juventus in all competitions so far this season, though is yet to net for the Bianconeri.
