Osvaldo pleased with loan move to Juventus from Southampton

Dani Osvaldo says he has fulfilled a dream by joining Juventus on loan, reports The Daily Star.

Osvaldo moved from Southampton to join the Italian giants on transfer deadline day, in a loan deal that will see the Italian international remain with the Turin club until the end of the season, and the striker could not be happier with the move.

The 28-year-old became Southampton’s record signing when he joined the St. Mary’s club from Roma in August 2013 for £12.8m, but was suspended by Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino recently for a training ground bust-up with Jose Fonte. Pochettino then moved quickly to seem Osvaldo surplus to requirements, and his move to Serie A could become a permanent one in the summer if the initial loan spell proves successful.

“I want to enjoy this personal moment. It’s an honour and a dream to be here at Juve," said the former Fiorentina striker.

“Both myself and the team will focus solely on doing things well and the rest doesn’t matter.”

Osvaldo played against Juve on several occasions during his earlier stint in Italy, where he played for Atlanta, Lecce, Fiorentina, Bologna and Roma. He says that they were always difficult opponents to play against, and hopes to enjoy his time on the other side of the fence.

He continued: “They [Juventus] were devastating. I found it a really tough experience. I hope I can now enjoy being on the other side.”
