Osvaldo "honoured" to wear Batistuta's Fiorentina No9

Fiorentina's Argentine striker Pablo Osvaldo admits he's honoured to have been awarded the No9 shirt.

"I am very glad to be here. I know I have many things to learn, but I am eager to work hard," said Osvaldo.

"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."
