Amauri: ‘I needed that’

Posted on 18/02/2010


Amauri went from a four-month drought to three goals in two games for Juventus. “I really needed that.”
The Brazilian was under fire before the 3-2 win over Genoa, as he hadn’t netted in all competition since October 28.

That seemed to open the floodgates, as he bagged a crucial brace in tonight’s 2-1 Europa League victory away to Ajax.

“I am so happy. I really needed these goals, I couldn’t wait to get back on the scoresheet and I thank God for all of this,” said Amauri.

“Now I hope to continue along this path, because it is very important for me.

“I had a slight sciatica problem on Sunday and tonight. It is a little inflamed, but nothing to worry about.”

It is no coincidence that Juve rediscovered their winning streak once Amauri ended his drought.

“My improvement is really that of the whole team and I am happy about that,” he insisted.

“As for my goals, when a good ball comes in then it’s easier to score. Tonight two great crosses arrived and thankfully I got them in the back of the net.”
