Fiorentina's Argentine striker Pablo Osvaldo admits he's honoured to have been awarded the No9 shirt.
"I hope I do well, I want to be immediately available for the Coach.
"[Gabriel] Batistuta was a very important player for Argentina, but the number wasn't that important.
"I liked it, I knew it had belonged to Bati and that is why I chose it. It is an honour for me to wear it."
