Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella has moved to deny reports linking him with a January switch to Roma.
The experienced forward yesterday stated that he would like to work under Roma boss Zdenek Zeman, but has quickly denied exit talk after the media interpreted his statement as a desire to join the Giallorossi.
“Hello everyone, I wanted to explain that my words have been misinterpreted,” Quagliarella wrote on his official Facebook page. “I responded to a question about Zeman like any other player.
“He is a coach who preaches an attacking brand of football that allows all of his forwards to express themselves in a good light.
“But I have no intention of leaving Turin. It is a fantastic city, I’m happy here with Juventus, a club whom I have won things with.”
Fabio Quagliarella joined Juventus in a €10.5 million deal from Napoli in the summer of 2011, after spending one season on loan with the Bianconeri.
He has since scored 15 goals in 45 Serie A appearances for the Old Lady, but has been considered a bit part player over the last two seasons.
Due to the fierce competition for places in attack, the 29-year-old started just three league games this term, but, in all fairness, he never expressed a desire to leave the club due to the lack of playing time.
