Re-born Amauri praises Parma

Amauri has thanked Parma for kick-starting his faltering career following his loan move from Juventus.

The previously goal-shy striker scored seven times in 11 League games for the Gialloblu following his 2011 switch.

"I thank the club, President Tommaso Ghirardi and director Pietro Leonardi because they allowed me to get back to playing football," he said. "I'm happy with what I achieved.

"There was a lack of belief towards me in Turin. In January I decided to put myself up for discussion, to join Parma and demonstrate my worth.

"At the end of the day I was proved right."

The Gialloblu have indicated that they will make an attempt to keep the Italian international at the Tardini, but a final decision has yet to be made.

"I'll just have to wait and see," the Brazilian-born forward, 30, noted. "I'm a Juventus player and I'll have to return, but you never know what will occur."
