Despite suffering from playing time since joining Juventus in 2018, Mattia Perin is apparently happy to stay at Turin for years to come.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport Going through JuventusNews24the keeper has decided to accept the Bianconeri’s renewal offer.
Like other contract offers, it will include a payroll deduction. Nevertheless, the Italian is still ready to continue and maintain his role at the club.
The former Genoa keeper is currently acting as an understudy for Max Allegri’s first-choice Wojciech Szczesny.
But this season, Perin has slowly become an influential figure in the Juventus dressing room, and management would be more than happy to retain the services of a reliable second-choice keeper.
Juve FC says
At 29, one would expect the talented goalkeeper to seek out a club that can guarantee him playing time while he is at the peak of his powers.
Nonetheless, Juventus’ mentality can be contagious, as we’ve seen senior players pass it on to their younger teammates.
For example, third-choice goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio is barely present, and yet the club appreciates his presence because he is someone who brings positive vibes and encourages his teammates.
So if Perin is willing to sacrifice playing time to serve as a soldier for the cause, then Juventus should be delighted to have one of the best Italian goalkeepers of his generation as a backup option.
