Juventus announced the signing of Montenegro forward Mirko Vucinic

The 27-year-old Montenegro forward Mirko Vucinic signed a €13.1 million, 3 year deal with Juventus. Vucinic is to be transferred from Roma and will take his starter position as the 5th Juventus signing this year, which already includes such players as Stephan Lichsteinerfrom  from Lazio, Andrea Pirlo from AC Milan, Arturo Vidal from Bayer Leverkusen and Reto Ziegler from of Sampdoria.

Juventus is hoping to erase the bad memories of the uneventful 2010-2011  Italian Seria A season with some help from newcomers, such as Mirko Vucinic. However, no satisfaction for those who wanted to see Vucinic in  a Roma uniform this year.

"Juventus have done well to take Vucinic, he's a great signing," Savicevic, Former AC Milan forward and current Montenegro Football Federation president, said in his interview.

"And now that he's matured this transfer will allow him to take a definite step up in quality.

"He could have gone to Chelsea or Manchester United because Mirko has the ability to play in big clubs and he deserves it.

"Football goes in cycles, as happened with Milan. After some tough seasons Juventus should get back to being one of the best."
