Del Piero welcomes Zlatan Tuesday 31 August, 2004

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero is delighted with the news that his club have signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede should complete his move from Ajax on Tuesday after a £13m fee was agreed last night.

"I don’t really need to say it but he is a great buy," stated the Italian. "Everyone is aware of his quality. I’m happy with his arrival and not worried about the competition for places."

The 23-year-old is set to sign a four-year contract and could be presented to the media as soon as this evening.

"Juventus have made an excellent move," added Italy and former Juventus tactician Marcello Lippi.

"The club have strengthened themselves and weakened an opponent in their Champions’ League group.

"Ibrahimovic undoubtedly increases the quality of the squad which boss Fabio Capello has available to him."

The attacker was also a target for Roma but they have now opted to net Egyptian forward Ahmed Hossam Mido from Marseille.

The 21-year-old is in the capital and his capture is set to be officially confirmed by this evening.

German tactician Rudi Voller has also landed in Rome after admitting that he will be the new Giallorossi boss.
