Toni: 'I've always supported Juve'

Juventus' new striker Luca Toni has made no secret of his lifelong passion for the Old Lady.

The 33-year-old moved to Turin in the January transfer window and scored his first goal for the club against Cagliari last weekend.

Interviewed in La Stampa, he said: "I couldn't wait to do it. It was also my 100th in Serie A, an objective that I wanted to realise as soon as possible.

"Inside I had a lot of anger. I wanted to show that I am still a good player. The best way to do that is to score goals and it's beautiful to score with the Juventus shirt.

"I would have done it already in Naples if they hadn't disallowed my goal.

"It's easy to say that you have always been a fan of the team where you play, but that really is the case with Juventus.

"I come from Modena, a city full of Juventini and it's the same for my family too. It was a dream of mine as a child," he concluded.
