Zaza: 'If I scored against Juve...'

Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza is co-owned by Juventus and insists he will “not celebrate” if he scores against them.

This fixture won’t arrive until December, but the 22-year-old is already thinking about that moment.

“If Juve spent money on me, then I believe they did it because they believe in my potential,” he told Tuttosport.

“In recent years Juventus have invested a great deal on young players and it is an honour for me to be a part of this club. If I score against Juventus with Sassuolo, then I will not celebrate, as part of my contract is owned by the Bianconeri.

“However, right now I am concentrated on Sassuolo. I’ve never spoken to Antonio Conte, as my only contact was with directors Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici.

“It is my dream to play in a World Cup and the Champions League, hopefully wearing the Juventus jersey.”
