Cancelo has recently sprang back into action one month after an operation on the meniscus in his right knee, wearing and tearing AC Milan during the Coppa Italia clash in Saudi Arabia. The 24-year-old played with an incredible pace and energy as if he's never had an injury.
Most importantly, ex-Internazionale defender picked up his first trophy as Juventus player but doesn't seem to be content with only that as he eyes to further build upon his success at the Old Lady:
"I want to win more and we’re working every day towards that,” he told Sky Sport Italia, adding: “It’s been a difficult period because I was in pain when I played, so it was tough both physically and psychologically. Then I started to feel I was getting better day after day. As hard as it was, I knew what to do to return as soon as possible.”

Cancelo has settled in with relative ease, forging good relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo and his fellow full-back, Alex Sandro - here's what the Portuguese had to say on that:
“I feel very good here – this is an amazing group, with great players and fantastic people.
“[Cristiano] Ronaldo and I are friends – he’s a great player, the best in the world. Obviously, he raises the team’s level and makes the difference. That’s why Juventus brought him in.”
