Juventus striker Marco Borriello insists that revenge won’t be on his mind when he faces Roma in the Coppa Italia.
The centre-forward is being tipped to start tonight’s quarter-final game at the Juventus Stadium – just weeks after leaving the capital club on a loan deal.
“I’m not after revenge against Roma,” the Italian told the Corriere dello Sport on Tuesday. “However, I do want to be confirmed in Bianconero.
“I won’t fail to take up this opportunity because I want to demonstrate to everyone that I deserve to wear this shirt.
“I’ll look to convince everyone here over the next five months that I am a player that they can count on.”
Borriello, 29, has struggled for action so far this season after Luis Enrique was appointed as the new boss of Roma.
Under the Spaniard, the former Milan man only made seven League appearances. He’s made one substitute appearance for the Old Lady so far.
Borriello hasn’t scored for 247 days.
