Torino midfielder Davide Bottone has dedicated his Italy U21 call-up to coach Walter Novellino and president Urbano Cairo.

"It is a dream come true," Bottone told Tuttosport. "I want to thank Toro President Urbano Cairo as he spent the money to buy me from Varese and I hope that this will also please him.

"I can never thank Walter Novellino enough for what he has done for me. From my first training session at Malles he has treated me like any other player and shown faith in me. I will always be thankful to him."
