thumbnail Hello,

Palermo's Matteo Darmian is satisfied with his performance in the win over Juventus.

Palermo defender Matteo Darmian believes that his display in the 2-1 victory over Juventus was one of the best of his career.

The 21-year-old entered the match in the 11th minute after Federico Balzaretti picked up a knock and often had to deal with the threat of Bianconeri winger Milos Krasic.

"I stopped Krasic with the help of my team-mates. He was certainly not an easy opponent to control," he explained Darmian told

"My performance? My best here in Palermo after a few rounds of being injured. The important thing is that I was ready. When I entered the pitch I was very excited, playing in front of a team like Juventus.

"The secret of this victory? Our team spirit enabled us to overcome the critical phase [of the match]."

Darmian is a youth product of Milan, but is currently on a co-ownership deal at Palermo after finding too much competition for a place in defence at San Siro. He has featured for Italy at several youth levels.
