Di Natale is Udinese for life

I think that what I've done with Udinese will go down in the history of the club. I don't see that as something insignificant.

The truth is that I've found my natural home in Friuli and I've never thought about leaving a team, a town and a family - the Pozzos - who have adopted me like a son.

I miss Naples and I'm proud to be Neapolitan, but Udine is like a second home for me. I'm feeling great here and I feel the love from the fans.

When Juventus contacted me, I told their president that I wanted to stay here. That's how we decided that I'd stay here for life.
