Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella is happy with the competition for places up front at the club, insisting they all feel of equal importance.
The 29-year-old faces stiff competition from the likes of Alessandro Matri, Mirko Vucinic, Nicklas Bendtner and Sebastian Giovinco for a starting berth.
But the Italy international said they all had a part to play and are confident of making an impact when given the chance.
“There are five strikers and the coach has always been straight with us from the start. He picks two for every game and we all feel first choice,” Quagliarella told the club’s website.
“It’s possible to play two or three games in a row and then start on the bench or be in the stands.
“We know that goals are expected from the strikers, but (coach Antonio) Conte mainly looks at our contribution to the play and movement. What matters is that our sacrifices bear fruit.”
Quagliarella has netted five goals in 10 appearances so far this season.
