Juventus, Vlahovic, Del Piero: Reactions to Yildiz’s first Serie A goal

Kenan Yildiz scored his first Serie A goal on his debut as a starter for Juventus and was praised on social media by the Bianconeri and his teammate Dusan Vlahovic.

Yildiz took just 12 minutes to score on his first game as a starter in Serie A as he dribbled past three Frosinone defenders and found the net at the near post.

He celebrated by sticking his tongue out and confirmed at the end of the game that club legend Alessandro Del Piero inspired it. The 2006 Italy World Cup winner seemed to appreciate as he shared a picture from Sky Sport Italia showing his and Yildiz’s celebration.

Yildiz also took to his official Instagram account after the game. Like in his post-match interview, he mixed English and Italia. “What a great day. This match and this goal I will not forget it! Thank you, team, and thank you, coach, for the support! Thank you bianconeri Grazie a tutti,” said the Turkish starlet.

Juventus shared a couple of Instagram posts to celebrate the 18-year-old while his teammate Vlahovic wrote in an Instagram story: “Congrats, little bro, keep going,” wrote the ex-Fiorentina striker.

Manuel Locatelli posted a picture with the Turkish starlet, and Yildiz thanked him in Italian, writing “Grazie” with a magic wand emoji.
