Amauri leaves Juve in the past

Amauri has archived his Juventus past after he made a scoring return to the city of Turin with Parma on Sunday.

The centre-forward was forced out of the Old Lady in January 2012 – he joined Fiorentina for six months – after failing to break into the plans of boss Antonio Conte.

“It’s nice to come back here,” he noted after the 3-1 win against Torino. “This city provided me with some beautiful memories and some disappointments.

“Saying that, I prefer to live day by day – to look to the future and not the past.

“I had some difficult times at Juventus and I was forced to go in a not very nice way, but that is now gone.

“Today I’m celebrating with Parma and I hope that continues.”

Parma are seventh in the table after two straight wins. “We are getting better,” said the Brazilian-born Italian international.

“But we have to stay with our feet firmly on the ground. The championship is very balanced this season and one incident can turn the result of a game.”

Amauri, 32, has three goals in six matches after his summer move to the Tardini.
