Juventus striker Amauri: I'll always be grateful to Zamparini

Juventus striker Amauri has paid tribute to his former Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini.

The pair chatted on Italian television yesterday and Amauri said: "I am happy to speak with the president, he is what I still consider to be 'My President'.

"I've always been grateful to the Rosanero patron since it was he who allowed me to fulfill one of my dreams by joining a prestigious club like Juve. Zamparini has believed in me from the very beginning, starting from August 2006 when he made a significant financial sacrifice to get me from Chievo.

"I will never forget what he has done for me."
