Giovinco: I Don’t Miss The Serie A

share on:

Former Juventus man Sebastian Giovinco has stated he doesn’t miss the Serie A and enjoys life at Toronto FC.

Giovinco made the switch to the MLS side last year, signing a five year deal that has seen him launch his career at the club with 22 goals and 14 assists in 34 appearances.

And Giovinco is not ruling out a move back to Europe, but has revealed he doesn’t miss the Serie A.

“I’m very happy in Toronto, I’m happy with the choice I made,” he told SportItalia.

“I can’t wait to start again, we’ve been stopped for a few months and I want to get back to playing.

“Juventus? I miss it, but I made the choice and I’m delighted. I knew MLS was a growing league, and I wanted a change of lifestyle.

“Serie A? For now I don’t miss it, we’ll see in a couple of years, but at the moment I’m happy. I don’t know what will happen in the future, you can never say never in football.

“Football in MLS is growing, and in five or six years it will be an even more important league.”

Giovinco featured as a substitute in Italy’s recent Euro 2016 qualifiers, and the forward is confident he will be a part of Antonio Conte’s plans in France.

“[Conte] has shown that distance isn’t a problem. I hope to go to the European Championships,” he said.

Giovinco also confirmed his performances in MLS did attract interest from Spanish champions Barcelona.

“I didn’t believe it myself,” he said.

“It was true though, even if there was nothing concrete. A small approach, shall we say.”
