Torino coach Novellino excited by derby

Torino coach Walter Novellino is excited ahead of tonight's derby against Juventus.

"Finally the derby is here, after so much waiting! It is an important game, a special one, but there are also points to be won," he said. "I am looking at the table and there we are missing something.

"Juventus are an exceptional squad lead by a great Coach who has won in every competition. They also have an incredible attacking line-up, as I cannot understand how a player with the class of David Trezeguet is not considered a first team choice for France.

"The fans stop me in the street wherever I go and ask me to win this game, to beat Juventus. It happens all over the city. It's wonderful and I hope to repay the Granata faithful."
