Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni has turned on the Italian press after a disappointing Euro2008.

Toni said: "I discovered who really cares about me. I am convinced I wasn't as bad in Euro 2008 as the Italian media made out.

"Not only the German Press, but also the players told me they were amazed at so much criticism. If I have become so useless, then the new Coach probably won't even call me up!

"During my vacation back home I ran into many people who did not put all the blame on my shoulders. The media was over the top."
