Pastore has Coppa Italia dream

Javier Pastore cannot wait for Sunday's Coppa Italia Final against Inter. “It's a dream just to be here, but Palermo want the trophy.”

The Sicilians haven't been in the Final since the 1970s and a victory would give them their first ever Coppa Italia silverware.

“I am happy to have reached this Final and it's a dream just to be here,” Pastore told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I can't wait to get out there and am so happy for teammates and fans. I hope to repay them with a win.”

Inter are the holders and favourites for Sunday night at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

“Let it be clear, Palermo want the trophy and it would be a dream come true to lift the Coppa Italia with a Rosanero jersey on my back, especially against a top side like Inter.

“The fans would go crazy with joy and I can't even imagine the scenes.”

Pastore does not have a good record against Inter, as he has never scored against them and missed a penalty at San Siro earlier this season.

Palermo were 2-0 up at San Siro at the time, but went on to lose 3-2.
