“Last year I went to Roma and we were a step away from realising our the dream. I’d like to bring with me a bit of luck here and I’d believe it until the end. I’m ready to play in Naples, but of course the coach will decide.

“I have come here to show my worth, which is something I am convinced about, and to score goals, which I have always done. I’m a striker and I believe in that area – I will be work very well with Del Neri.
You can’t say no to Juve. This group has a great hunger to achieve results and are therefore I am convinced that we will fight to win every game and maybe go back to being the Juve of the past.”
