Viviano shows his Viola side

Bologna 'keeper Emiliano Viviano is no fan of tomorrow's opponents Juventus. "I've not liked them since I was a child."

The Italian international is a known Fiorentina follower and the historic rivalry between the two outfits hasn't been lost on him.

"I've not liked them since I was a child," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "Being Fiorentino, it's natural that I have an aversion to the Bianconeri."

Although Viviano, part-owned by Inter, isn't particularly keen on the Turin giants, he is respectful to those running the club.

"I think the current set of directors and officials in Turin are people that mean well and I have great respect for their Coach Gigi Del Neri."

Saturday's tie won't allow Viviano to face his Azzurri colleague Gigi Buffon though. The Juventus 'keeper is suspended after his dismissal at Lecce.
