Diego: ‘I have much to prove’

Posted on 15/08/2010


German newspapers may claim he has a €16m deal with Wolfsburg, but Diego is focused only on Juventus. “I have much to prove, this is only the beginning.”

The Brazilian impressed during Friday night’s Trofeo TIM and scored a fine goal against Milan.

“I have much to prove this season. This is only the beginning,” he wrote on his official website.

“I was very satisfied, as it’s not every day you get to score a goal like that.”

The result was 1-1, losing in a penalty shoot-out, while Juve lost 1-0 to Inter in the other 45-minute match.

“Facing the strongest Italian sides in a friendly tournament like this is a great way to improve our pre-season condition.”

Meanwhile, the German newspapers continue to maintain that Diego is in advanced negotiations with Wolfsburg.

They state the two clubs agreed on a €16m fee and his father flew to Germany to discuss personal terms.

It’s reported Diego wanted €8m per season over three years, but settled on €24m to be spread over four years.
