Quagliarella thrilled with starring role

By Football News

Juventus striker, Fabio Quagliarella displayed all of his class to open the scoring with an acrobatic effort in Saturday's match, before sealing the result with a neat solo effort inside the penalty area as Juve ran out 2-0 winners over Chievo.

On Wednesday Quagliarella came off the bench to net the equaliser as Juve came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at holders Chelsea in the Champions League.

"This really is one of the greatest weeks in my life," the forward told Sky Sport Italia.

"It was really pleasing to have received a standing ovation from the fans.

"Today I wanted to prove I was ready and I accomplished just that. I did my duty."

The game was Quagliarella's first start of the season for Juve and hopes to convince head coach Antonio Conte he is worthy of a regular starting slot.

"We'll see (if I start against Fiorentina next week)," he said.

"I always ensure I am prepared if I am called upon, following which I will leave it to the coach to decide."
