The Shakhtar Donetsk striker Alex Teixeira has said that he has the ambition of playing for the Italian club Juventus. The striker has been at the Ukrainian club for the last two seasons now.

Alex Teixeira was one of the impressive performers for the club.
One of the main reasons for Shakhtar Donetsk being able to play in the knockout stages of the European competition is the home form. They managed to beat the European champions Chelsea 2-1 at their home, which proved to be crucial in the final stage. Teixeira has said that it is extremely vital that the team manages to maintain a similar kind of performance.

I will try my best to make that happen over the next few years. I think my best performance in the Champions League this season was against Juventus in Turin. And even though they beat us at home, we are still going into the next round with a lot of confidence,” said the striker.
