has revealed that


are able to replace him easily should he not perform well. He also talked about how much he loved Harry Potter books when he was growing up.

The United States national team star is enjoying his second season with the Bianconeri, having joined them from


in 2020.

The 23-year-old contributed to two domestic trophies during his first season with the Old Lady and has been regularly playing from the start under the reign of Massimiliano Allegri. However, he knows that his situation may not be sealed and secured.

The player’s deal is due to reach its end in 2025 and he has told


of the expectations he has to live up to at Juve:

"Right now, yes, I'm happy here. One of the things you dream about is playing in a great club with an important history, with many fans, the atmosphere.

"But football is such an unpredictable sport, you have your ups and downs. I have learned in so many different ways that football is big business and if you can't perform at a club like Juventus, replacing you is as easy as signing you.

"Now I'm happy, I'm doing well and I hope to continue, but no one knows what the future holds."

McKennie also talked about his mother and how important she was in his success, from the start in the United States and Germany to now playing for the Bianconeri.

The midfielder also revealed that he enjoyed Harry Potter books so much when growing up.


My mom told me that my grandmother had bought me the whole collection of Harry Potter books. I was very happy, I loved the designs on the covers,"

he said.

McKennie also mentioned his mother’s advice that she keeps providing him with while he features at Juve:

"My number one fan? Yes, sure, still today. She still sends me the messages before and after the games.

“'Today you look a bit heavy, you have to be faster, defend better' or 'You played well, nice goal, you surprised me.'

"I always tell her 'Mom, you don't know anything about football!' and she replies 'I've been around the fields as much as you have!'"
