Guangzhou Evergrande striker Alessandro Diamanti is happy with his move to China.
The 31-year-old joined the Chinese outfit, coached by Marcello Lippi, in January from Bologna.
"Soon we will restart our work to reach our targets at Guangzhou,” Diamanti said. “It’s a great experience, I am encountering so many cultures and I couldn’t have made a better choice.
“The World Cup? I will watch the matches that are broadcast. I hope Italy win, even more so because we secured second place at the Euros, third in the Confederations Cup and there is only one place on the podium missing!
“As for the rest of the teams, the favourites are the usual suspects.
“Prandelli? I haven’t heard from him and SMS messages don’t work from China to Italy.”
