Amauri Enjoying The Changes

[champions] Chelsea x Juventus :  3Changing environment is one of the best way to restore a one’s motivation and that’s pretty much what on loan Parma striker, Carvalho Amauri, felt especially after he managed to start scoring goals again in the league since changing colors.

So far, the striker has already scored three goals from five matches including the two important strikes that he had just did against As Roma last weekend, which one of them kind of reminded people of Amauri’s best days at Palermo.

Notably, it was Amauri’s first goal against Roma that pretty much got the media attention back on him once again after deciding to wear the Gialloblu jersey this winter. The goal was scored in a way that couldn’t really get much classier as the Brazilian born striker hit a back hell goal that left the keeper stranded despite getting the attention of a defender. It was something that many Italian football fans haven’t really seen again during the striker’s time with Juventus.

Acknowledging his current improvement under Parma, Amauri admitted that moving from Juve was indeed what he needed in order to restore his footballing career that gone through a bleak time with the Bianconeri. Moving from Palermo in a pretty high profile deal in 2008, the striker still unable to reprise the sort of performance that made the Juventus management went all the way to get him that year. Instead of spending a successful time on the pitch, at Juve, the 30-years-old spent more time on the treatment room as injuries never seemed to stop coming for him.

At times you need to change something in order to start turning things around. I am happy. I feel good. I have suffered many injuries. I have played little. Now I have found continuity. I want to keep scoring a flood of goals. I want to show what I know how to do and give everything,” Amauri said.

In a sort of coincidence, the same kind of effect also happened to Amauri’s current teammate, Sebastian Giovinco, who suddenly finding his feet again after also moving away from Juventus last summer. Surely, the 30-years-old striker would like to have the same results as Giovitonco, which is playing to his potential again and maybe getting another shot at wearing the Italian national team jersey under Cesare Prandelli.

The possibility for Amauri to find his best footballing days again at Parma is actually pretty big that might make him consider of joining the club permanently next season, especially since Juventus’ fans doesn’t seem to fond him anymore. Having less pressure hanging on his back every time he stepped on the pitch would be the advantage that the striker have at Ennio Tardini, which is totally different from what happened in Juve.
