Giovinco, De Ceglie happy to be back with Juventus

Sebastian Giovinco and Paolo De Ceglie are back with Juventus after Italy's Olympics disappointment.

"Naturally we have to say first off that we are very disappointed at the way it ended," said De Ceglie of Italy's quarter-final exit to Belgium.

"We wanted to go all the way. Now I dive back into club football with great enthusiasm and hunger. I was able to follow Juve's progress from China and saw the wonderful victory my teammates achieved over Artmedia."

That 4-0 first leg result has all but put the Bianconeri in the Champions League, which will be a debut in that competition for both the Under-21 internationals.

"The Olympics didn't go the way we all wanted and it is a real shame," added Giovinco on Juventus Channel.

"I'll try to make up for it in Turin. I know a long and very difficult season awaits me, but I start out really fired up to make space for myself in this squad of champions."
