Juventus striker Quagliarella proud of 2012 comeback

Fabio Quagliarella admits he had a great 2012 with Juventus.

The striker was sidelined for six months after damaging knee ligaments in January 2011 and it took him some time to then break into the first team plans of new Juventus boss Antonio Conte.

"It was a special year for me," he said when reflecting on the past 12 months. "I faced a dark period because getting over my injury was not easy.

"But that blow made me understand many things. It allowed me to see who loved me, it strengthened my character and my patience. I then finally re-emerged.

"I was more determined than ever and my hunger for goals gave me great moments of joy in Serie A and the Champions League.

"And it was great to win the Scudetto."
