Giovinco forgets about Juventus

Parma's Sebastian Giovinco is ready to close the door on his Juventus past. "Everyone knows that I want to stay here."

The attacking midfielder is currently on loan from the Turin giants, but the Gialloblu do have the option to pay €3.5m for a 50 per cent stake in him at the end of the season.

"There is nothing new to report about my future, everyone knows that I want to stay at Parma," he told Tuttosport ahead of this weekend's Parma-Juve tie.

"I have some beautiful memories of Turin, but they now don't matter. I'm not thinking about Juventus and they don't interest me."

The Old Lady, who considered Giovinco as surplus to requirements last summer, have had a problematic campaign.

Currently seventh, they are struggling to qualify for European competition with just two games remaining.

"Juventus want to finish the campaign strongly," added the Italian international who has his eyes on Euro 2012.

"In four or five years I am sure that Juventus will return to being great again. I hope so for the fans.

"It looks as if the club are going to make some big investments and that is important."

Giovinco scored twice for Parma in the club's shock 4-1 win at Juventus earlier in the season.
