Palermo face Juventus in Turin on Sunday.
“Since the age of 13 when I was in Uruguay, my dream has always been to play for Juventus,” he told Tuttosport.
“At that time Alessandro Del Piero and David Trezeguet were already there, two absolute idols. Now I’ve grown up and play against them, but they’re still the best.
“It is a very important game for us, as we believe in Champions League qualification. I didn’t expect to meet Juve in fourth place, as I thought they’d be in the thick of the Scudetto race.”
