Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is set for a comeback against Juventus, sends Francesco Totti a birthday message and insisted Roma “are going for the win.”
The striker missed the last couple of games due to suspension and injury, but is training with the squad again and ready to play in Turin on Saturday night.
“These are two great teams and the ones who play the best football in Serie A,” Osvaldo told Sky Sport Italia.
“Obviously the Roma fans really want to beat Juve and at the end of the day the players also experience it like a fan.
“I already scored in Turin with an overhead kick for Fiorentina, so I’m feeling good.”
When asked which of the Bianconeri stars he would like to ‘steal’ from their team, he went for the attack.
“I really like Fabio Quagliarella. Mirko Vucinic? He’s very strong, but has already played for Roma, so he’s had his turn! Did Juventus want me in the summer? I don’t know, I only read that in the papers.
“We are going for the win against Juventus, as we have a great squad and we can get the victory. What can we achieve this season? I’m a dreamer, but I don’t know if we’re targeting the title.”
Today is Totti’s 36th birthday and he marked the occasion last night by scoring his 216th Serie A goal, putting him joint third in the all-time charts.
“Playing with Francesco makes everything easier, as he is a champion. I sent him a text message at midnight on the dot to wish him a happy birthday.”
