Tatarusanu eyes UCL spot

Fiorentina goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu says he is looking to play Champions League football after establishing himself as first-choice under manager Paulo Sousa.

The 30-year-old revealed his desire to play amongst the best players in the world, in addition to revealing the Viola's objectives for the season.

"If you train with the best, if you play against the best, it isn’t possible to not develop even if you tried," he told Tuttosport.

"That is why I came to Italian football. I would like to play in the Champions League and win a trophy with Fiorentina.

"Going as far as we can in the Europa League, as well as the Coppa Italia, is one of our targets."

The Romanian international also highlighted the top teams in Serie A, and revealed his admiration for Juventus shot-stopper Gianluigi Buffon.

"In the League, other than Juventus who seem the strongest team at the moment, without discounting Napoli and Roma we are among the top teams in Serie A.

"Let’s hope it can be a year of real surprises. Buffon is definitely among the best three goalkeepers in the world. For us goalkeepers there are good days and others that are less good."

"The errors a goalkeeper makes are the ones people notice first and which usually cost the most."
