Sucking up already? Khedira believes that Juventus is not inferior to Real Madrid and feels the Serie A is on the same level with the La Liga.
The midfielder spent five years at the Bernabeu before an injury saw him sidelined for the majority of the 2014-15 season. Khedira’s contract expired in June and the German international joined Juve on a four-year contract.
Juve qualified for the final of the UCL by sending Madrid packing and Khedira has hailed his new side.
“I wanted a fresh challenge and Juventus give me just that,” the Germany international told reporters. “They’re on the same level as Real Madrid.
“It will be a real honour for me to play in this league. It’s a tough championship and full of strong sides.
“I don’t consider the Italian league to be inferior. It’s a high-quality championship and tactically challenging.
“Juve have displayed their ability to compete with top European clubs. I’m here to reach another Champions League final.”
