The Brazilian defender will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season due to injury, but remains optimistic he will return to action even stronger
The Brazilian defender picked up a knee injury in his side's 2-2 draw against Bologna on April 5 and will consequently be miss the remainder of the 2013-14 campaign.
Nevertheless, Juan Jesus remains positive and has little doubt that he will get back even stronger, despite wearing a leg brace which he says makes him "feel a bit like Robocop."
"Injuries come with the job. I see it as a life experience," the defender told Inter Channel.
"I'd never had an injury before, not even a minor one, but I'm relaxed about the whole thing. I'm working and having treatment to get back to my best form.
"I have to wear a brace for a month and then we'll see. I feel a bit like Robocop with this thing on.
"Thank God it's not a really bad injury. I will not undergo surgery because it's only the collateral ligament and it can sort itself out."
The 22-year-old has made 27 Serie A appearances this season.
