The former VFB Stuttgart and Real Madrid star Khedira says winning is like a drug.
German midfielder Khedira keen to win the UCL with Juventus in the next few years.
Midfield marshall Sami Khedira has admitted his dream is to win the Champions League with Serie A giants Juventus.
The former VFB Stuttgart and Real Madrid star, who twice underwent knee surgery in 2019, says winning is like a drug for him, and securing Europe’s elite trophy for Juve is one of his major objectives.
Juventus have won the Italian top flight for eight consecutive years but haven’t been successful in the UEFA Champions League, with their last triumph running all the way back to 1996.
The Italian giants still have a chance of winning Europe's top club competition this season but need to overturn their last 16 first-leg defeat to Lyon when they host the Ligue 1 side at the Turin.
"I won almost everything, but winning is like a drug, if you don't win a title for one year, the next year you try to win all kinds of titles," the German, who signed for Vecchia Signora in 2015, said on Instagram on Thursday.
"My dream is to win the Champions League with Juventus. Almost three or four years ago, we were very close in the final against Real Madrid.
"I think we can win this title with Juventus in the next few years. In my opinion, this is not just my dream, but also that of every Juventini."
The World Cup winner Khedira also reflected on winning the Champions League with Spanish side Real Madrid in 2014.
"It was awesome. I spent unforgettable moments there with many successes. We won all sorts of titles like the league, the cup, but also the Champions League," he said.
"We had a very strong team with very strong characters. That's why I will never forget this great time and I am still a big fan of this big club.
"That's why: Hala Madrid!"
