Giovinco ready to fill Trezeguet void at Juventus

Sebastian Giovinco is ready to step in for Juventus after learning that David Trezeguet needs knee surgery.

"I certainly did not hope for my teammates to get hurt and I am disappointed for them, but in any case, I am ready," he told Tuttosport. "Unfortunately when I arrived I was a little tired after spending the summer at the Olympics, but now I am in great shape.

"The important thing for me is to play and Claudio Ranieri will decide if and where I do. I played left midfield and as a centre-forward for Empoli!"

The Under-21 international returned from that loan spell a star and already a fan favourite in Turin.

"It is a wonderful feeling to be up there with so many champions. Now I have to prove that I belong here. I want to become a key figure for Juve and it's up to me to achieve that.

"Everyone keeps telling me to keep my feet on the ground, but thankfully I am a quiet lad and with my personality that really isn't going to be a problem."
