Rodrigo Bentancur spoke about the first six months in Italy. The player praised his teammates, above all, Gianluigi Buffon, who was instrumental in his assimilation into the squad.
“Since I’ve been in Italy, my recovery times have improved and I am slowly getting better as a player too,” Bentancur told Sport 890.
“For example, they have already worked on the way I mark opponents. Since coming here, I have also put on 5kg of muscle.”
Buffon was quick to help Bentancur acclimatize to the Bianconero culture.
“On my first day, Buffon received me in this incredible way. He surprised me, as he knew who I was, he knew my name. He’s a phenomenon and always gives me advice. Buffon is on another level.”
