Daniele Rugani caps off a tremendous week personally with a win over the Giallorossi and basks in the joy of signing an extension with the Scudetto holders.
Filling in for the likes of Barzagli and Bonucci is a tall order to ask but Daniele Rugani has taken control of the Bianconeri back-line with seasoned leadership and poise. Coming off a 1-0 victory against Roma, the central young defender expressed his current state of happiness to Sky Sport, post-game:
It has been an incredible week. The derby, the contract renewal, the win against Roma. I am happy. Today, we took home an important victory, three golden points. The defensive system here is different compared to Empoli, where here we man-mark. There is more physical contact. The lessons I learned under Sarri have done wonders for me. My teammates are the best example I could have.
