Elia seeks Juve exit

Eljero Elia is seeking to leave Juventus after failing to make an impact in his debut season with the club.

• Juve savour title glory

Elia, 25, signed for Juve from Hamburg last summer in a €9 million deal, but he has played a total of 107 minutes in their Scudetto-winning season.

He accepts that he will now play no part in Netherlands' Euro 2012 campaign this summer and feels he will need to "start all over again" in terms of his career.

"I want to leave Juventus," he told Algemeen Dagblad. "I want to enjoy playing football again. I remained quiet all year, always keeping a positive attitude towards the club and the team, but I never got a chance to prove my worth.

"I didn't play much and consequently I'll miss out on Euro 2012. It's fair to say this season has been a failure. It's really hurt me, but I've become stronger mentally. I'm 25 now and I still have a long career ahead of me."
