“I think the players are some of the best central defenders in Italy if not Europe. While they even called might be more open with four defenders. That’s all rubbish.”
“These players have great qualities as a human being and also in the technical side, because to win four successive Scudetto was outstanding. Nevertheless our season is still not over. I have to thank everyone who has helped me on this journey, starting of the club and the staff, “he said.
