Shakhtar star Lucarelli: I don't regret quitting Serie A

Shakhtar Donetsk striker Cristiano Lucarelli is delighted to have made his Champions League debut with victory over Celtic.

Lucarelli will make an emotional return to Italy as Shakhtar have been drawn in Group D alongside AC Milan.

"I have no regrets at leaving Italy," he insisted. "I came to Donetsk to play in the Champions League as you would have to be at Milan, Inter or Juventus to do that regularly in Italy."

The No 99's return to the peninsula is scheduled for October 24 as the Rossoneri entertain Shakhtar.
