Quagliarella: Juventus coach Conte can rely on me
The Italian is being heavily tipped to start the game in Denmark, replacing Mirko Vucinic, as the Bianconeri kick off their Champions League campaign.
“The coach, as always, makes his decisions,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “But my objective is to do well in training and convince him to pick me game after game.”
“I’m always ready. When the coach decides that I need to start a game or come on as a substitute, he knows that he can calmly rely on me.
“If he decides that it is my turn to play then there would be no problem at all.”
The ex-Napoli forward made an impact in the competition last season, as he netted four times in seven games with Juventus reaching the quarter-finals before losing to eventual winners Bayern Munich.
“The Champions League, as it was last year for us as well, is a dream,” the striker added. “The hope is that we get further than we did in the last campaign. Let’s just see how it goes.”
Quagliarella was only used as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at Inter on Saturday, a result which allowed Napoli to claim top spot in the Serie A table, but Quagliarella is not worried.
“We had been at the top of for some time, but this Napoli, with their signings and play, are showing they are a Scudetto candidate,” said the player.
“We knew that it would be a hard season for us in Serie A. But we are only at the Week 3 stage, the championship is long so let us wait and see.
“We certainly won’t give up.”
