thumbnail Hello,

The Juventus striker star has taken the time to praise the experienced attacker, while singling out Napoli as his side's biggest rivals in the title race

Alessandro Matri is confident that Nicolas Anelka will prove to be a valuable signing for Juventus and believes the Frenchman's experience could be key in the Champions League.

The 33-year-old joined the Bianconeri in the January transfer window, and the 28-year-old has nothing but praise for his new team-mate.

"There’s no doubting his quality: he has always shown his value, he is used to winning and has a great international pedigree," Matri told Sky Sport Italia.

"The last aspect will be very useful to us, because there aren't many in our team who can count on such experience on the European stage.

"The initial impressions are very good."

The attacker then went on to discuss his side's chances to retain the Serie A title, and singled out Napoli as their biggest rivals.

"Lazio are also doing well, but Napoli have been playing together for a longer period of time and they are currently our main rivals.

"They have great strikers, but our team play enables many different players to score and it is no coincidence that we possess the most prolific attack."

Juve currently hold a three-point lead over Napoli.
