Siena striker Michele Paolucci is delighted with his loan return to Juventus.

Paolucci progressed through the ranks at Juve but never played for their first team and left in 2006, first on loan to Ascoli before moving to Udinese in a co-ownership deal with the Turin outfit the following term.

"I have great memories here," he told Juventus Channel. "Coming into the city was immediately wonderful and I even found it better than how I left it.

"It would be nice also because in the many years which I spent here I never had the chance to make my debut with the first team.

"When I left here I was little more than a boy. Now I have several years of Serie A and several matches under my belt.

"I think the experience around Italy helped me to be more ready and motivated."
