Vincenzo Iaquinta insists he deserves a starting place at Juventus.

"I don't feel inferior to any one of my teammates," Iaquinta said in an interview with Tuttosport, before reiterating his willingness to stay at the club and sit on the bench.

"A great team has to have four quality attackers and someone has to be out every now and again. That someone is me.

"But the day that I signed for Juventus, I knew what I was up against," Iaquinta admitted. "Otherwise I would have chosen a club with different ambitions and played all the time."
