Juventus midfielder Melo: I owe everything to Fiorentina

Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo says he owes his career to Fiorentina.

Melo joined Fiorentina from Almeria two years ago and faces his old club this weekend.

He said: "Important? I would say it was decisive. The Felipe Melo of today was 'born' in Florence.

"Fiorentina helped me win a place in the Brazil side and allowed me to move to Juve. I could never forget the 12 months I spent with the Viola."
