Matthijs de Ligt understands why Juventus fans are frustrated with his underwhelming performances since arriving from Ajax.
The 20-year-old Dutchman has struggled for form since moving to Italy for £68million last summer.
He has found himself on the bench but returned to the side for their 2-1 win at Roma when defender Merih Demiral sustained a season-ending injury, and held onto his place for last week’s win over Parma.
Speaking about the anger at his inconsistent form, he told Tuttosport: ‘It’s normal, it’s all normal.
‘If I had been in their shoes, I would also be angry at such mistakes. But as a player these are problems that shouldn’t interest me.
‘I just have to think about working to improve myself, understand if I’m making progress or not.’
Despite finding life in Italy tough, De Ligt claims he is content with his first six months in Turin.
‘For sure, I am happy with the way my first six months have passed,’ he added. ‘I’m convinced that I will get better and better, game after game.’
