Juventus striker Iaquinta: Roma didn't want me

Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta admits he spoke with Roma last summer when he was weighing up his future at Udinese.

Ahead of this weekend's big game, Iaquinta said: "I made my choice because Juve is the 'Old Lady of football'. They're the best known team in the world, a heavy shirt to wear, but you are filled with responsibility: it is good being with Juventus.

"I spoke with Roma when I was in Udine, Luciano Spalletti wanted me. But in the end there was never anything concrete, but today I am pleased because in the end I came to Juventus."
