Giovinco: ‘Parma key to my future’

Sebastian Giovinco has admitted that he hopes his performances at Parma will eventually earn him a move to a big club.

The Italian international joined the Tardini outfit from Juventus in the summer of 2010 on a loan deal, before the Gialloblu bought a 50 per cent share in him at the end of the season.

Having been given the opportunity to play regular first team football, the Atomic Ant is proving his worth.

“You can only mature as a player if you play,” the 24-year-old told Sky Sport Italia. “That is what I was missing [at Juventus]. I have that possibility here and I’m very happy.

“Every player would like to arrive at a big club as that represents the best you can get and I’d like to win something in my career.

“But, for now, I just have to do well at Parma and then we’ll see what happens. I hope that I can find a club who wants to focus on me…”

Giovinco has understandably been paired with a return to Juventus, especially as Alex Del Piero will leave Turin at the end of the current campaign.

“I have been impressed by Juventus this season,” added the Turin native and club youth product. “I think Milan have a better squad to win Serie A, but I do hope that Juve end the term as champions.”

Giovinco, capped six times by Italy, has scored seven goals in 12 top-flight games for Parma during this season.
