Juventus winger Marcelo Estigarribia says that he is "very proud" to be playing for the Italian giants.
The 24-year-old joined the Turin powerhouse on loan from Uruguayan side Deportivo Maldonado for the 2011/12 season during the summer, and has scored one goal in six Serie A appearances thus far.
Estigarribia was on target for the Bianconeri in their 3-3 draw with Napoli in Naples last month and is pleased with the way he is settling at the Juventus Stadium.
"Juventus have a great structure," the Paraguay international told 970AM. "The city of Turin is very nice but a little bit cold.
"Juventus are a very organised club, that's why they have won so many trophies. I am very proud of being where I am.
"I still can't assimilate the position I am in," he added. "I am trying to enjoy it, and spend time with my family and my girlfriend."
Reflecting on his goal against Napoli, Estigarribia enthused: "It was the second time that I played from the first minute and that I played the entire game is important for me.
"I am very happy with the result, it was a very hard game."
Juventus are currently in pole position in Serie A with 29 points from 13 matches, two ahead of both AC Milan and Udinese.
