Fernando Llorente says he has Juventus in heart and that he won’t celebrate if he scores against his former club.
The Spaniard will return to Turin as part of Tottenham Hotspur squad for tomorrow’s Champions League squad.
“It was a wonderful two years, I wore the shirt of Italy’s biggest team,” Llorente told Premium Sport.
“I have Juventus in my heart, there are so many memories which bind me to that city. To the Bianconeri fans I’d say I’ll be in another shirt, but I love you and I can’t wait to see you.
“I wouldn’t celebrate if I scored out of respect, when I hear the name Juventus I still get chills.
“I’d say the tie is 50-50, we are two very strong teams. After the draw I told myself it was destiny: I met Juventus when I was at Sevilla, but I didn’t go to Turin because I was injured.
“It will be very emotional to come back.
“Max Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino? They’re two great Coaches. Mauricio has changed Tottenham and after some initial problems look where they are now.
“We have to continue like this so we can start lifting trophies.
“The Scudetto? Napoli are having an incredible season and play well, but Juventus are used to winning and will come out on top in the end.”
