Toni: 'You can't say no to Juve'

Juventus' new signing Luca Toni has expressed his excitement at joining the club and hopes to keep the Old Lady in contention for the Scudetto.

The veteran striker arrives on a free transfer from Genoa and has signed a contract until June 2012.

Speaking at his official unveiling Toni said: "I am delighted. It's a dream come true.

"I really wanted to join the club. I actually turned down [more] money to accept their offer.

"I have come here to show my worth, which is something I am convinced about, as well as to try and score goals, which I have always done.

"I was excited when this offer was made to me. I know the group and I know of their desire to win.

"Last year with Roma we were a step away from realising a dream.

"I would like to bring a little bit of that luck with me and I believe [we can fight for the Scudetto] right until the end.

"I am ready to play against Napoli. It's up to the Coach to decide. It would be great to play alongside Alessandro Del Piero. He is a great champ.

"This group of players has a great hunger to get important results and therefore I am convinced that we will fight to win all the remaining games and hopefully get back to being the Juventus of old.

"You can't say no to Juve. I am a box-playing centre-forward and I believe that I will fit in well with Del Neri. I have chosen the No 20 shirt," he concluded.
