Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza ready to face Juventus: I won't celebrate

Sassuolo striker Simone Zaza is preparing to meet Juventus this weekend.

Zaza is co-owned by the two clubs.

"If Juve spent money on me, then I believe they did it because they believe in my potential," he told Tuttosport.

"In recent years Juventus have invested a great deal on young players and it is an honour for me to be a part of this club. If I score against Juventus with Sassuolo, then I will not celebrate, as part of my contract is owned by the Bianconeri.

"However, right now I am concentrated on Sassuolo. I've never spoken to Antonio Conte, as my only contact was with directors Giuseppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici.

"It is my dream to play in a World Cup and the Champions League, hopefully wearing the Juventus jersey."
