Borriello honoured to have Juve chance

Marco Borriello has given his first press conference as a Juventus player, claiming he is honoured to be at the club.
The striker completed his loan switch from Roma last week, with the Bianconeri paying €500,000 for the loan. The option price to make the deal permanent in June has been set at €8m.
Juve fans in Lecce unfurled a banner on Sunday which read ‘Borriello: Mercenary without honour or dignity’ after his failed summer switch from Milan last season, but the player insists he did not refuse a move.
“I am happy and honoured to have the opportunity to move to Juve. The banner made me sad as I have great respect for Juventus fans. I have never refused Juventus and will not enter into controversy. Being here is hugely inspiring.
“I want to once again reassure the fans that I never refused a move to Juve. It wasn’t me who chose to go to Roma; it was Milan because they wanted a permanent transfer for me.”
Borriello declared his intention is to make the move permanent, insisting he is ready to fight for a place in the team even after struggling for playing time in the capital under Luis Enrique.
“I want to gain everybody’s trust and stay here at Juventus for as long as possible. I want to acquire the Juve mentality as soon as possible. Conte hasn’t had tactical discussions with me, just motivational ones.
“I want to show Roma they were wrong to let me go. I’ve always bettered myself. Genoa, Milan, Roma, Juventus are all big teams so I’ve had competition, but am no primadonna. I’ve physically recovered, no later than tomorrow I will join the team. I was a little unlucky in my career, I have more to give.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
